Many academic departments make
cooperative education and internship opportunities available to their student
majors as an integral part of the students' academic program at Northern
Arizona University. Cooperative education/internship is career related and
academically relevant employment which is approved by a faculty member. Academic
credit is given upon successful completion of the co-op internship or work
Most co-op internship opportunities
begin after completion of at least the sophomore year. Co-op programs normally
alternate periods (summer and/or semester) of full time work with periods of
full time study, and require a commitment for at least a minimum number of work
periods with the same employer. Internship programs are similar to co-op, but
are not alternating and usually involve only summer work sessions. Students receive
a salary from the employer, but generally travel and housing must be paid by
the student. There is also a parallel program which allows the student to work
locally part time while attending classes at Northern Arizona University.
Specific terminology and details often vary from employer to employer. For
further information, inquire directly to the dean's office of the college or
school in which your academic major is housed.

There is an extensive student financial aid program
to assist students and families to finance a college education. Financial aid
programs include scholarships, grants, employment and loans. To be given
priority for financial aid funding, students should begin the application
process in January for the next academic year. The first step is to complete
the Free Application for
Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Prior to completing the FAFSA on the web, both
students and parents must secure an FSA
ID. The FSA ID acts as an electronic signature.
New freshmen are automatically
considered for merit-based scholarships once they are offered admission to the
University. All admitted students, new and continuing, may complete the Scholarship Application. This is an
application for all University Foundation Scholarships as well as a search tool
for hundreds of external scholarships for which students may want to apply. The
Scholarship Application needs to be completed every year. Most scholarships are
awarded in the spring for the next academic year, so it is recommended to
complete this form by March of each year. As some scholarships are need-based,
each student should also file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid
Students who demonstrate financial
need may qualify for the Federal Work Study Program; however, student wage and
off-campus employment is available to all students, regardless of need. For
more information, please visit this website.
Veterans Educational Benefits
The Office of Student Financial Aid
provides assistance to veterans in applying for educational veterans' benefits.
For additional information, visit our website.
Paying Tuition and Fees
If the total amount of financial aid
exceeds the total amount of charges due (tuition, fees, housing, meal plan, and
other current charges) the Office of the Bursar will issue the student a
refund. Enrolling in direct deposit ensures that all excess financial aid,
refunds, and university paychecks will be directly deposited to the student's
checking or savings account. Students may sign up for direct deposit on LOUIE. If the
student does not sign up for direct deposit, all financial aid, refunds, and
paychecks will be mailed using the refund address provided on LOUIE. Please be
sure all address information is current.
If the total amount of anticipated
aid is less than total tuition due, the difference can be paid by going to the
"Finances" link on LOUIE with a Master Card, American Express,
Discover or electronic check. Other payment options are listed on the Student and Departmental
Account Services website.
Satisfactory Academic Progress
All students receiving federal
financial aid must maintain satisfactory academic progress. Students must
maintain at least the minimum GPA required by university standards and must
also complete the number of credit hours upon which funding was based during
each semester. Students who fail to meet these requirements may be suspended
from all federal and state funded assistance programs. It is the student's
responsibility to be aware of the Satisfactory Academic Progress
standards outlined. SAP standards for institutional or private donor
aid may differ.
Financial Aid Notifications and Communications
The Office of Student Financial Aid
communicates with students primarily through their NAU e-mail accounts. In many
cases, this is the only notification of financial aid status a student will
receive. It is very important to establish and use the student e-mail account.
Any students who use an e-mail address other than the one provided by the
university are responsible for ensuring that mailings from their student e-mail
are forwarded to their other account.
