Cost of Attendance - Through NCAA legislation, institutions can now include funds towards covering the cost of attendance gap for student-athletes on an athletic scholarship. The Cost of Attendance gap is provided to cover a student-athlete’s additional reasonable expenses related to attending college, such as transportation, technology, clothing, laundry, and personal items. NIU Athletics is committed to funding Cost of Attendance for all student-athletes, providing a student-athlete experience that is second to none.

Game Day Equipment - Beginning in the 2017 season, our coaching staff will be allowed to use technological tools, such as enhanced software and tablets both inside the coach’s booth and on the sidelines. These devices will allow our coaches to review plays in a timely and efficient manner, gaining a competitive edge over our opponents.
Nutritional Meals - Due to new NCAA legislation, we have the opportunity to feed our student-athletes more frequently, directly impacting their nutritional goals and on field performance. Nutritional eating plans are essential for our student-athletes to train and compete at the highest level.
Recruiting Tools - When out traveling or hosting recruits on campus for visits, we strive to showcase both Northern Illinois University and NIU Football on a first class level. Having the proper resources allows our staff to provide a top-notch experience for prospective student-athletes visiting NIU.
