Financial Aid (DukeHub and FAFSA)



Students are encouraged to take a couple of minutes and to go into DukeHub, which is the student access to the Duke system, and under Financial Aid check to see that the scholarship you were offered from the Nicholas School has been posted. Please be aware that all awards including scholarships and loans may be posted to your account but will not be applied towards your tuition and fees until 10 days prior to the beginning of the semester. Even through your bill is due August 1st, the Bursar will be able to see if you have accepted your financial aid and they won’t apply a late payment penalty provided the aid you have accepted covers your tuition and fees for the semester.


The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is your one-stop application for grants, work-study, and educational loans offered by the U.S. government, states, and Duke University. Many of our students supplement merit-based awards and other financial resources with federal loans acquired through FAFSA. Students who are not US citizens or permanent residents are not permitted to submit a FAFSA. When submitting your FAFSA please submit to Duke University, code 002920.

Once you submit your FAFSA, please review your Student Aid Report (SAR) carefully; if everything is accurate, you don’t need to do anything else. The Federal Processor will send your report directly to the Nicholas School; after that, we may contact you to request verification or additional documentation.
