Welcome to the
University of Notre Dame's
Office of Financial Aid
What students are asking about Student Financial Services:
How can I request a refund of my student account credit balance?
A student (or parent of an undergraduate student) may request a refund when a valid credit balance exists on their student account. Please note that a refund cannot be issued until loan proceeds and/or other Financial Aid are disbursed to your student account, you have completed ND Roll Call, and classes have begun for a given semester.

for more information.
I received a scholarship from an organization outside of Notre Dame. What do I do?
The receipt of any scholarship or grant not listed in the original Financial Aid Notification must be reported to the Office of Financial Aid as soon as the student is notified of the award. View further information about how the receipt of an outside award may affect your financial aid here
You may advise the donating organization to make the scholarship check payable to the "University of Notre Dame" and send directly to the Office of Financial Aid with your NDid for application to your student account.
If the scholarship check is made payable to you, forward the check directly to the Office of Financial Aid with your NDid, and make it payable to the "University of Notre Dame" for application to your student account.
Will living off campus affect my financial aid eligibility?
No. A standard room and board allowance is used to determine undergraduate students' cost of attendance whether they live on or off-campus. The allowance for the 2013/2014 school year is $12,512. Click here

Can my academic performance affect my financial aid eligibility?
