Financial Aid Nights

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

What are 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.

Financial Aid Information Session

This session will provide families with information on all of the Federal and State grants, scholarships and loan programs available through the FAFSA.  Key information and requirements on filing the FAFSA are covered. The presentation is approximately 30 minutes, followed by a FAFSA filing workshop at your high school. The presenter along with additional staff (as needed) will be present to answer questions and assist families as they file their FAFSA. The typical length of the evening's event is approximately two hours (taking into account the presentation as well as the FAFSA filing workshop).

Preparing for the Information Session

In preparation for the Financial Aid Information session, the student and one parent should plan to create a Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID in advance and bring it with them that evening. The FSA ID is a username and password that allows students and parents to identify themselves electronically to access FSA Web sites. It is the fastest way to sign the FAFSA and have it processed.

On average, it takes about seven minutes to create an FSA ID. Please keep in mind that an email address or mobile phone number cannot be used with more than one FSA ID. If the student is creating their FSA ID, they will need to include their own email address and/or mobile phone number. The parent will need to include his or her own email address and/or mobile phone number when creating their FSA ID. Federal Student Aid has a helpful video that walks students and parents through each step of creating an FSA ID.


Your session registration must be completed at least 30 days prior to your requested event date. We will work with you to meet your specific needs. 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.
