Scholarships & Aid
Northeast has financial solutions to make graduate school a reality.
Graduate school is a big investment with even greater returns, and Northeast can help. Our students receive scholarships and aid directly from the College, as well as via several private scholarships established by individual donors, alumni, chiropractic organizations and foundations. Northeast also participates in the U.S. Department of Education's direct loan and workstudy programs.
