Financial Support

Financial Aid

NUC University offers financial support to students who are eligible for the programs currently managed by the Institution. Aid offered to each student is subject to the availability of funds for the specific award year of each grant as well as to each student’s shown financial need. We also provide payment plans and other institutional aids to help students fund tuition costs.

The available financial aid programs of the institution are:

  • Federal Pell Grants Program
  • Direct Federal Loan Program
  • Financial Aid for Active Military and Veterans
  • Federal Work-Study Program (FWS)
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG)
  • Grant Program for Talented Students (BETA for its Spanish initials)
  • Institutional payment plans
  • Institutional Grant Program

Federal Pell Grants Program and Direct Federal Loan Program

To apply for financial aid from federal funds for programs offered by the institution, the student should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
To be eligible for any type of student aid, students have to meet the Institution’s Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress.

You are not alone when it comes to your student loans. NUC University has created an alliance with Inceptia, a division of the National Student Loan Program (NSLP), to provide free assistance in federal student loan obligations, to ensure students’ success and convenience in repaying their loan. Inceptia’s customer service representatives may make a courtesy call during the grace period to answer any questions that you might have about your obligation and/or payment options with your loans. They may also contact you if your loan(s) is (are) delinquent or in default. Inceptia is not a collection agency. NUC maintains this service to help you explore a wide variety of possibilities such as alternative payment plans, postponement/deferrals of payments, consolidation, debt suspension, debt forgiveness, and temporary suspension of collection (extension). Inceptia will be in contact with you through phone calls, letters and/or emails to help you find answers to your questions and solutions to your problems.

For more advice, including information on payment options, visit Inceptia’s website, which includes a summary of Federal Student Loans at

Financial Aid for Active Military and Veterans

NUC University is staffed with specialized professionals to guide active military students or military dependents. Our different academic programs (see WAEMS) are authorized by the Veterans Administration and have been designed with today’s labor sector’s demands in mind. This gave us the opportunity to qualify for the Military Friendly® certification, the only institution in Puerto Rico to obtain this certification since 2015.

Payment Plans

To assess your case, you need to contact the collection office after choosing your program and requesting federal aid

Institutional Grants

From NUC University we are always looking for alternatives and additional assistance for those students in greater need. That is why we have a grant plan to complement federal aids.
