New Student Scholarships
North Shore Community College offers a wide variety of financial aid options: Federal, State, institutional and private. More than half of all students who apply for aid receive some type of award. More than one third of financial aid applicants have their tuition and fees fully covered by financial aid. The average aid award is $3,000, and on average NSCC students borrow less than $2,500 in student loans.
