Important Announcements & Dates

SPRING 2016 financial aid awards are being posted to myNTC for students that have completed the 2015-2016 FAFSA plus other necessary steps such as verification, are accepted into an eligible program, and are enrolled in classes. Adjustments to aid based on enrollment changes will be done closer to the beginning of the semester.

Before financial aid can be processed...

  1. Complete the 2015-2016 FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov. The Federal School Code for NTC is 005387.

  2. You must be accepted into an eligible program AND enrolled in classes. Spring semester begins on January 25.



Aid cannot be processed until all requested documents have been received and reviewed.

  • If your Student Aid Report (SAR) or our office sends a letter requesting taxes, you should log into your saved FAFSA and use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to import your tax information automatically & then re-submit and sign your FAFSA.
    This brief video tutorial shows you step-by-step instructions on how to submit corrections on your FAFSA using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool.

The interest rate for subsidized and unsubsidized loans with a first disbursement on or after 7/1/15 is 4.29%.

Please Note:  Book Vouchers expire prior to running the following week’s financial aid refund process to avoid any late Bookstore charges that may not get deducted before that week’s financial aid refunds are processed and distributed to students.
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!
