Welcome to the Nicholls State University Office of Financial Aid! We’re here to help you. In order to learn as much as possible about applying and receiving financial aid, please make your selection from the menu on the left. Most full-time undergraduate students at Nicholls depend upon financial assistance to pay their educational costs. A student unable to meet the cost of an education at Nicholls with personal or family resources should apply for financial aid.

Financial aid alternatives available are in the form of grants, scholarships, loans and employment opportunities. Regardless of income, residence or academic credentials, students should apply for financial aid. Some students who believe they are ineligible for assistance learn that they are eligible.

First-time freshmen graduating in May 2015 may submit a Resume of High School Activities to be considered for a leadership scholarship.
