Grants

Grants are financial aid gifts—meaning they don’t need to be repaid. Grants are usually determined by financial need based on the information you provide in your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

North Central Grant - Max Award: $6,500/year
  • Eligibility: Awarded based on academic achievement and financial need (as determined by the FAFSA).
  • Renewal: Renewable by maintaining a 2.0 cumulative GPA at North Central.
  • How to Apply: Students are automatically considered by being accepted to North Central, submitting the FAFSA, and submitting all requested documents. A student must have submitted a FAFSA no later than the 30th calendar day of the term to be eligible.
Minnesota State Grant - Amount: $100 to $10,745/year
  • Eligibility: Available to Minnesota residents who demonstrate financial need.
  • Renewal: Maximum length of eligibility is 8 semesters, whether or not a student receives a state grant during a semester.
  • Deadline: To meet the deadline set by the state of Minnesota, a student’s FAFSA must be received by the federal processing center within 30 days of the start of the semester.
  • How to Apply: This aid is automatically awarded to qualifying students based upon the information provided during the Admissions application process.
    • NOTE: 15 credits is considered full-time. If a student drops below 15 credits, the Minnesota State Grant will be reduced to the appropriate award amount based on the number of credits taken.
