How to Apply

First Time Users

If you're applying for an opportunity or resource for the first time, you must complete BOTH the Basic Profile AND the specific opportunity or resource application. For example, if you are applying for the Student Activity Assistance Fund (SAAF), you must complete your general application AND the SAAF application. The actual application you are looking for will have different questions than the Basic Profile. 

Repeat Users

If you've already submitted your "Basic Profile”, all you need to do is submit your opportunity/resource specific application. The nice thing about One Form is that your Basic Profile is saved for the entire academic year, so that you don't have to repeat your financial narrative, multiple times throughout the year. Of course, if your financial circumstances have changed, you can absolutely update your general application, and we encourage you to update the Financial Aid office by writing to Brian Drabik at b-drabik@northwestern.edu.
