Financial Aid Shopping Sheet
In addition to your award notification, the Financial Aid Office at Northeast, in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Education, has implemented the Financial Aid Shopping Sheet.
The shopping sheet is a form that was designed by the federal government in an effort to create a standardized way for schools to communicate cost information to families while incorporating specific financial aid awards. It is designed to make it easier for families to do a side-by-side cost comparison for each of their selected schools. In addition, information on the school’s default rate, graduation rates, median federal loan borrowing amounts, and repaying your loans is included. The Department of Education created the form to assist families in making an informed decision about how to pay for college.
A student may access their personalized Financial Aid Shopping Sheet via their My Northeast account. Students will still need to view their award notification on their My Northeast account and accept/decline their financial aid.
To access the shopping sheet:
- Log on to your My Northeast account
- Click on the Financial Aid tab
