"My Financial Aid" Instructions

The InsideND portal houses the "My Financial Aid" resource for currently enrolled students.  Students can use "My Financial Aid" to access important financial aid information, such as their submitted and outstanding requirements, their annual Financial Aid Notification, as well as a summary of their federal student loan borrowing. This information is available 24/7 which allows students to check on their status at times when the Office of Financial Aid may not be available. 

Communications from the Office of Financial Aid

In most cases, email to a student's Notre Dame email address is used as the primary means of communicating with enrolled students. The email provided on the admission application is used for prospective and newly admitted students.  PARENTS, PLEASE NOTE: The Office of Financial Aid sends all correspondence to the student. The student is responsible for sharing the information with their parents.
