Financial Aid & Scholarships

Almost 2 million community college students received Federal dollars in the form of Pell grants in an academic year! But that was less than 20% of those who could have received assistance! Chances are, YOU could qualify for financial aid.
    The purpose of financial aid is to assist students who have documented need with educational expenses, such as tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, transportation and personal expenses when their resources are inadequate to cover such costs. However, the primary responsibility for financing a college education lies with the student and his/her family.

    The first step in determining financial aid assistance is for students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or a Renewal FAFSA (for continuing students). The FAFSA must be completed each school year. Download a free guide on Federal Student Aid.

    PRIORITY DEADLINES: A priority deadline is the date by which students need to have submitted their online FAFSA application AND provide any other documents needed to the NPC Financial Aid Office. This allows sufficient time to determine your award. Learn more here.
