Application Process for Federal/State Programs:
In order to apply for Financial Aid at NSCC the student must complete the following steps:
- Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available online a www.fafsa.ed.gov for each year that you wish to receive financial aid. This form can be completed as early January 1, each year for the upcoming fall, spring, and summer semesters.
Be sure to include NSCC as a recipient for your FAFSA results. Our Federal School code for the FAFSA is 007534. You must have a PIN to sign your FAFSA online. If a parent is required to sign your FAFSA, your parent will need a PIN as well.
Students are encouraged to file their federal tax return prior to completing the FAFSA and to complete it prior to March 1 to increase the possibility of receiving multiple forms of financial aid assistance.
- Complete the NSCC Financial Aid Application via myNSCC in the Financial Aid section under my Self-Service. This form is available once the student has submitted a FAFSA application or has an Admission’s application processed. This form provides supplemental information to the FAFSA and serves as the Scholarship Application for all scholarships awarded through the NSCC Financial Aid office.
- Additional information may be required before a student can be awarded aid. Once the FAFSA application is received we will send out a letter explaining any additional requirements along with any forms that might be required.
Additional requirements might be added once submitted documents have been reviewed. We will send out additional letters if new items are required. You can check the status of your financial aid application at any time by logging into MyNSCC under Self-Service and checking your outstanding financial aid requirements.
Failure to submit requested information in a timely manner may delay receipt of your award and/or prevent students from being considered for some Financial Aid programs.
- Once all requirements have been met, aid will be awarded based on eligibility and aid preference. Award information will be mailed to the student. It can also be immediately reviewed on MyNSCC under Self-Service.
