Apply for Financial Aid

  • Financial Aid advisor meets with a NOVA student

Federal Student Aid websites including FAFSA.gov and FSAid.ed.gov will undergo a scheduled outage from August 3 thru 6, while the Department of Education upgrades its systems. We encourage you to obtain an FSA ID and finish submitting your 2018-2019 FAFSA, including any necessary corrections, if you have not already done so before August 3. Our scholarships, grants, loans and work-study opportunities can make your college education more affordable than you ever thought possible.
