Financial Aid for 2018-2019

Financial Aid recipients must check their Campus Pipeline account and submit any additional information requested at the time of their registration.

Students who complete the financial aid process will receive an award letter that shows the types and amount of aid awarded. Please review your award carefully to make sure it will cover all of your charges.

* Some financial aid award, such as Stafford loans, requires students to register for at least 6 credits each semester. Please contact Student Financial Services staff for details

** Financial aid award may not be sufficient to cover the balance due in full in some cases; if that is the case, students will be responsible to pay the difference by the due date.

Third Party Payments

Students working with a third party that is willing to pay their costs to attend must submit a letter of intent or purchase order from their employer or other organization, e.g. Mass Rehab or Workman's Compensation.

The approved paperwork must be received by Student Financial Services prior to registering for classes or at the time of registration to prevent your courses from being dropped in addition to receiving late fees.

 

Please make sure these steps are completed upon registering for your classes. If you take action after the deadlines or fail to take the necessary steps you may be dropped from your courses and/or assessed a late fee of $50.

We strongly encourage you to review your account detail through your Campus Pipeline regularly. If you have any questions, please contact the Student Financial Services Office for guidance.

*If your classes are dropped, because you did not make arrangements as outlined above, NSCC cannot guarantee readmission into the classes, sections or professional program in which you were originally enrolled.
