Exchange with Canada - Health Insurance
For Plan A U.S. students, aid is awarded by and disbursed from your host campus. Students apply for federally funded financial aid by using the FAFSA code of their host campus. Host campuses award aid to eligible incoming Plan A students on a first-come, first-served basis as long as funds are available. Ask your home campus NSE coordinator if your campus awards aid to their own outgoing students. If so, do not apply for aid from your host campus.
For eligible Plan A applicants U.S. federal financial aid may be available in the following programs:
For eligible Plan B students, aid is awarded by and disbursed from your home campus.
Regardless of Plan A or Plan B, students exchanging to or from Canada, apply for financial aid at their home campus.
Housing fills to capacity every semester. We currently have an on-campus housing shortage. If you plan to live on-campus you should submit your housing application at the earliest date available. This date is determined by Residence Life. The contract for living on-campus is for a full academic year (both fall and spring semesters) or spring only. If you are at NAU for fall semester only you will need to provide documentation to Residence Life and complete a form from their office at the end of fall semester to be released from your housing contract. Students staying for fall semester only pay 60% of annual housing cost.
