Financial Aid Nights

Financial aid nights have become an important way to communicate financial aid information to parents and students new to the process. When properly planned and executed, these events can save time in disseminating information and increase parent and student comfort, confidence, and understanding of the financial aid process. Though the process may seem overwhelming, it isn’t as complex as you would think and gaining a better understanding will pay off for the parent and student in the long run. 

Northcentral Technical College is pleased to provide high schools within the NTC district with a FREE financial aid information session.

Please allow one week for scheduling from the date of your request submission to allow time for NTC to confirm your request and schedule a date.  

**While every effort will be made to schedule the session on the date requested, please note: your registration does not guarantee your requested date.

The workshop is 2 hours in duration and includes a presentation, materials and assistance in filing the FAFSA.

What to Bring

You will need the following items in order to complete your 2020-2021 FAFSA. If you are considered a dependent student for financial aid purposes, you will also need these items for your parent(s).

  • 2019 Federal Tax Return and W2s.
  • 2019 Untaxed Income Records, such as child support or veteran’s non education benefits
  • Information on savings, investments, business assets and farm assets (if applicable)
  • Driver’s License (if you have one)
  • Social Security Number
  • Alien Registration Card or Permanent Resident Card (if you are not a U.S. citizen)
  • Date of birth for parents, and month and year of parents’ marriage, divorce, or separation
  • Month and year of parents’ marriage, divorce or separation
  • FSA ID (if you have one). You can visit to create your FSA ID. For assistance with the process, please call 1-800-433-3243.
  1. The FSA ID is your signature, so it has to be unique to you and will be your FSA ID for life.
  2. If a parent already has an FSA ID or has more than one child attending college, the parent will use the same FSA ID to sign all applications, but each child must have his or her own FSA ID.
  3. Every student and at least one parent of a dependent student will need an FSA ID.
  4. Each FSA ID user must have a unique mobile phone number and/or email address.

It is highly recommended that a dependent student attend the event with a parent or guardian so the FAFSA can be submitted that evening.
