A variety of federal, state, and local financial aid programs are available to qualified students who might otherwise find it difficult or impossible to attend Nashville State Community College. Fair and equal consideration is given to applicants without regard to race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, or disability.
Your FAFSA and all required documents must be received by the Financial Aid Office by 4:30 pm on Apr. 1, 2016 for summer semester, and by by 4:30 pm on July 1, 2016 for fall semester, in order to have aid processed in time to pay fees prior to the first purge. If you delay in submitting all of the required documents by the priority date, you will need to be prepared to pay your registration fees in full in order to keep your classes from purging (being dropped for non-payment).
You will also need to complete the NSCC Financial Aid Application.
The NSCC Financial Aid Application is used in addition to the FAFSA to determine your eligibility for aid, including student loans, and also serves as the NSCC scholarship application. For more information regarding the application process click here.
When completing the FAFSA it is highly recommended that you import your information into your FAFSA application from the IRS. For information regarding the benefits of importing your data from the IRS click here.
The Financial Aid office no longer accepts tax returns (form 1040 or 1040A, or 1040EZ) when completing the verification process for students. Students are required to request a tax transcript directly from the IRS. For more information and instructions click here.
