Welcome to Northern Kentucky University’s website for student-athletes! A Norse student-athlete is one who participates in an organized competitive sport sponsored by NKU. NKU sponsors 15 National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division 1 sports which include seven men’s sports and eight women’s sports. For more information on NKU Athletics, visit:


 This website will provide you with information regarding athletic and non-athletic financial aid. It is important to note that if you would like to be considered for any non-athletic financial aid, the first step to assisting you in that process is to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). From the FAFSA it can be determined if you qualify for any loans or grants.


If you are a recipient of an athletic grant-in-aid scholarship, you need to know that these scholarships are granted on a one-year basis. At the end of each year scholarships are reviewed and are either renewed, reduced or canceled. You will be notified in writing about your award by July 1st each year.


Go Norse!
