My financial aid went fine, the Financial Aid director makes sure to keep things working like clockwork.
The difficulty with getting scholarships at NSA is that it is not government accredited. This makes many scholarships unavailable also affects taxes. However, Paideia is a non-profit scholarship committee that provides scholarships to NSA exclusively, and I was able to receive quite a bit of scholarships money from them. NSA also provides academic scholarships and gave me an additional grant my first year. The school itself does a fantastic job with its resources, but I'm giving it a B because of the relative difficulty of getting scholarships for this school.
