Undocumented Students Application InstructionsUndocumented students wishing to apply for financial aid at Northwestern should submit the College Scholarship Service (CSS) Profile application and federal tax returns or a Non-Tax Filer Statement, along with documentation of household income. Students who are Illinois residents will also need to complete the Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid. More information about state aid available through this program can be found on the Illinois Student Assistance Commission website. Other additional materials may be requested, as needed. The Financial Aid Committee will use these forms to establish the family contribution and to determine eligibility for Northwestern need-based scholarship assistance.
We encourage you to contact our office if you have any questions or would like to discuss your circumstances with a financial aid counselor.
