CARES Act Information
We understand that this semester has brought new challenges to your learning. Many of you are trying to complete your coursework, while also managing many other stressors during these unprecedented times. While this isn’t the semester that any of us hoped for, we remain committed to providing you the support you need to be safe, healthy and successful.
We recognize that this may be a challenging financial time for you. To support you on your educational journey, we are pleased to announce that you can now apply for Emergency Assistance funds made available through the Federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act and the NTC Foundation Emergency Fund. These funds are available to directly support students who have demonstrated need and are facing significant financial challenges due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
These funds can be used for expenses related to the “cost of attendance” as defined in the Higher Education Act, and can include food, housing (including utility costs), course materials, technology, health care and childcare expenses. It is our intention to prioritize disbursement to students with the greatest demonstrated need and ensure that funds are distributed as widely as possible.
If COVID-19 has negatively impacted your academic progress and caused you to require financial assistance, you are encouraged to apply for Emergency Assistance funding. This funding does not need to be repaid.
Applying for Funds
Complete the online application which can be found in your myNTC account under “Billing & Financial Aid.”
After You Apply
The NTC CARES Fund team will review your application and notify you via your NTC student email of your approval or denial.
Your success is important to us and we want to try to keep you on track with your educational goals. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to further support you during these unprecedented times.
