NTID Office of Student Financial Services

The NTID Office of Student Financial Services plays a unique role with financial matters in assisting deaf and hard-of-hearing students as well as students enrolled in the ASL-English interpretation program and Master of Science program in secondary education of students who are deaf or hard of hearing.

Here are some of the main services we provide:

  • Support deaf and hard-of-hearing students and their families with the Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) process
  • Select recipients for NTID private and/or endowed scholarships
  • Help students with eServices questions – this portal is for enrolled students, which provides individualized academic, billing, and financial aid information.
  • Direct students to the appropriate departments/programs for problem resolution as necessary.

Contact the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships (OFAS) for assistance on these topics:

  • How to apply for financial aid programs
  • Identifying sources of financial aid to help meet the cost of attendance
  • How financial aid eligibility is determined
  • Requirements for financial aid programs

The OFAS is responsible for awarding as well as administration of all need-based federal, state and institutional aid (i.e. grants, loans and work-programs). The OFAS has dedicated staff members with experience in every aspect of financial aid administration and who are specifically designated for deaf and hard-of-hearing students as well as students enrolled in the ASL-English interpretation program and Master of Science program in secondary education of students who are deaf or hard of hearing.
