Tuition and Financial Aid

What's the best way to pay for college?

You can get your degree or earn that certificate without mountains of student debt. We are committed to helping you find financial aid and payment resources that fit your needs.

Normandale is one of the most affordable colleges in Minnesota. Our expert coaches will guide you through the financial aid process to find scholarships, grants, work-study jobs and low-interest federal loans to help you pay for your education.

Do the FAFSA!

For U.S. citizens, permanent residents and other eligible non-citizens, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the one-stop form to apply for more than $150 billion in grants, loans, and work-study funds. Check out this video for info about the FAFSA and the resources available to help fill out this important application. Normandale’s FAFSA Code: 007954

MN Dream Act

This aid application process is for students who are MN residents but do not meet the citizenship requirements to complete the FAFSA. Applying can qualify you for State financial aid programs and the Normandale Scholarship program.
