Governor Baker approves $7.1 million in additional financial aid for community college students!
An additional $7.1 million in financial aid funding will be available for eligible full and part-time community college students for the upcoming academic year, thanks to the Commonwealth’s recently approved annual operating budget. Take advantage of this opportunity by submitting a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) as soon as possible and registering today for the fall semester at NSCC.
We expect the state to release more information about the eligibility of this new funding soon. In the meantime, Student Financial Services is available to answer questions about filing a FAFSA or financial aid at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-762-4189.
FALL 2018 semester payment is due AT THE TIME OF REGISTRATION
Fall 2018 bill due date was 5:00 pm on Thursday, August 2, 2018. Students who register for CREDIT courses after the due date are required to act on one of the following payment options AT THE TIME OF REGISTRATION. Classes will be dropped for non payment if students fail to act on a payment option immediately.
All NON CREDIT course payments are due at the time of registration.
Please use your Campus Pipeline account to make payments by check or credit card. We accept Visa, Mastercard and Discover. It's easy and secure:
Step 1: Log into your Pipeline account.
Step 2: Select the school Services Tab at the top.
Step 3: Select Account Inquiry and Payment Options.
Step 4: Select Make a Payment to pay by check or credit card (we accept MasterCard, Visa or Discover).
Sign up for the NSCC Payment Plan through your Campus Pipeline account. All plans require a non-refundable $40.00 payment plan fee at the time you sign up and make your first payment.
Fall 2018 Plans:
Note: The MassPirg fee and health insurance cannot be included in the payment plan. Students must either submit waivers or pay in full by the bill due date.
Also, Aviation flight training fees cannot be included in the payment plans. Flight training fees must be paid in full for Aviation students to be financially cleared for their flight training.
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.
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.
