Financial Aid FAQ's

  • What should I expect to pay?

    • Since there is currently no housing or meal plan options for the Northpoint LA campus, expected expenses are pretty straightforward:

Full-Time ($280/unit)

Fall: Tuition= $3,360 plus fees

Spring: Tuition= $4200 plus fees

Yearly Total: $7,560

 

  • What is FAFSA and how do I fill one out?

 

  • How do I create a FSA ID in order to file for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)?
    • The FSA ID ― a username and password ― has replaced the Federal Student Aid PIN and must be used to log in to certain U.S. Department of Education websites. Your FSA ID confirms your identity when you access your financial aid information and electronically sign Federal Student Aid documents. If you do not already have an FSA ID, you can create one at https://fsaid.ed.gov.

 

 

  • What type of Federal Aid is available?
    • Pell Grant: This is awarded to eligible students based on need, and grants do not have to be repaid. 
    • Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant: This is awarded to the most needy students, and does not have to be repaid. These funds are limited, so an early FAFSA filing is necessary to receive this award.
    • Federal Direct Loan: This loan is obtained from the U.S. government's Direct Loan program at low interest rates and consists of subsidized (the government pays the interest for you while you are in school) and unsubsidized (you pay interest while in school or allow it to accrue, that is, interest will be added to the principal amount and you will end up paying interest on interest) loans. Repayment of principal and interest begins six months after you graduate, withdraw, or drop below half-time status. Loans may not exceed your cost of attendance.
    • Federal Parent Loan (PLUS Loan): This loan is issued by the U.S. government's Direct Loan program to the parents of dependent undergraduate students who qualify. Repayment of principal and interest begins sixty days after the final disbursement. Fill out the Pre-Application here.
