Financial Aid:Checklist

Complete the checklist below if you wish to receive financial aid at NTC: federal and state grants, federal loans, and/or the Federal Work Study Program.


 Be accepted into a financial aid eligible program and enroll in classes

You must be accepted into a financial aid eligible program at NTC to receive aid.  You can complete the admissions application at anytime, however, your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will not be processed until you are accepted into a financial aid eligible program AND enrolled in classes.

 You may proceed to Step 2 while your Admissions application is in progress. 


Apply for Financial Aid

The most important step in finding out if you are eligible to receive financial aid is to fill out The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Many students who could receive financial assistance to attend college miss this opportunity because they don't complete the FAFSA.

  • Click here to Complete the FAFSA
  • Review the Student Aid Report (SAR) that you will receive from the Department of Education after you submit your FAFSA. 

Complete Documentation

You may receive a letter from the NTC Financial Aid Office requesting information required to determine the financial aid you are eligible to receive (IF your FAFSA is selected for a review process called "verification").

  •  The Financial Aid Office may request that you complete one or more forms. Before you can   receive your aid, you must return all forms or documents requested by the Financial Aid Office.
  • Many students choose to defer payment of tuition and fees until financial aid is awarded. Please check your my>NTC periodically for an update on your financial aid award. 

Receive Award Letter

Your next step is to receive an award notification from NTC via your NTC email account once you are accepted into an eligible program and enrolled in classes.  Your award notification will give you information on how to view your financial aid award via your MyNTC account.  Depending on your eligibility, you may receive an aid package that contains a combination of grants, scholarships, work study and loans.

Depending on the type of aid you will receive, there are different next steps. View information on:
