FINANCIAL AID AWARD POSTING:

  3. Additional loans for SUMMER, FALL, and SPRING may be requested now by completing the Additional Loan Request form. If you request more than your eligibility allows, the loan will be certified to your maximum eligibility. Loans received in summer reduce the amount available in future semesters. The interest rate for subsidized and unsubsidized loans with a first disbursement on or after 7/1/16 to 6/30/2017 is 3.76%.
FALL Book Voucher creation begins on Monday, 7/25 at 8:00AM, ends on Sunday, 11/20 at 12:00PM, and vouchers expire on Monday, 11/21 at noon.   
You must have financial aid in excess of the cost of your tuition/fees to charge books against your financial aid.
 

FALL DISBURSEMENT:

During the weeks of September 5-9 and September 12-16, Financial Aid staff will be working on the disbursement and refund process. Staff availability will be limited.
 
For ALL STUDENTS: NTC is required to disburse loans in two installments. If you are attending during the fall and spring semesters, funds are released in two installments to coincide with these academic terms. Student Loans that are borrowed for a single payment period (one semester) will be split between two equal disbursements. The first disbursement can be made at the beginning of the semester while the second disbursement cannot be made prior to the midpoint of the semester.
 
This means that half of any accepted loans can be disbursed according to the normal disbursement schedule. The other half cannot be released until the midpoint of the semester, which is the week ending October 21. If for some unexpected reason a student were to drop below half-time enrollment (have fewer than 6 enrolled credits) on or before October 21, the second half of their student loans would be cancelled.
 
Please Note:  If you have a Federal student loan balance of $0 you are considered to be a first-time borrower.  NTC is required to disburse loans to first-time borrowers no earlier than 30 days after the start of classes.  Although the fall disbursement schedule indicates that loans will be released during the week ending September 9, you can expect to receive loan funds no earlier than the week ending September 30 or later (based on your start date), provided that other eligibility requirements continue to be met (i.e. enrollment in 6 or more active credits at that time).

We're Partnering With BankMobile

Higher One, the company who was processing all financial aid refunds is now BankMobile Disbursements.

What does this mean for current students?

For current NTC students all Higher One accounts will seamlessly transition to BankMobile Vibe effective on June 1, 2016. No action will be required on your part! There will be no change in your account number and you do notneed to get a new bank card.

You can also now get cash off-campus without paying any fees at Allpoint ATM locations including: Target, CVS Pharmacy, Walgreens, 7-Eleven, and more! For a complete list of BankMobile Vibe ATMs, visit the Allpoint network ATM locator at http://www.allpointnetwork.com/

Please Note: Because of the new locations now available, the Higher One ATM in the Center for Health Sciences building was removed from service on May 4.

What does this mean for first-time students?

For first time NTC students if you are a newly matriculated student who has applied for financial aid and enrolled in classes, you will receive a selection kit in the mail (look for the green envelope) from BankMobile Disbursements once you are accepted into a financial aid eligible program and enrolled in classes. You must have a U.S. address on file in order to receive a selection kit. The selection kit contains a letter which includes a personal code.

Once you receive your Refund Selection Kit, follow these easy steps:

  1. Visit www.RefundSelection.com
  2. Enter your unique Personal Code
  3. Select how you’d like to receive your money
  4. Complete your profile
 
Late Start Students

Financial Aid awards for late start students are based on the number of credits a student has on the initial day the student enrolled in classes.  For example, a late start student enrolls in two 3 credit classes today, then adds two 3 credit classes the next day.  Their financial aid award will only be based on the two 3 credit classes they enrolled in on their initial day of enrollment.

Financial aid funds are disbursed no later than 14 days after the first day of class that a student is scheduled to attend.  If a grade of NS, W, or F is posted for a student or if a student receives a 100% or 80% refund, a student's financial aid award may be reduced accordingly.
Please read the Financial Aid Guide for important information regarding your financial aid.

Important financial aid notices are sent primarily through email. Check your email regularly!
