Financial Aid

Make your education more affordable with scholarships, grants and more.

Paying for college may seem like an overwhelming task, but at NOVA, we’re here to help you. We’ll walk you through the types of aid available to you — from scholarships and grants to work study and loans — and how to apply for them. 

To help you, we've pulled together links to financial aid tutorials on everything from how to create an FSA ID so you can apply for federal student aid to how to apply for work-study jobs. Turn to it whenever you need support in the financial aid process.
