Where’s My Financial Aid?

Once your FAFSA is received at NTC, a confirmation letter will be mailed to you.  When your financial aid awards are posted, an award notification will be emailed to your NTC email account. Information on how to view your financial aid awards via your MyNTC account are posted below and will be included in the email notification also.
To view your Financial Aid awards, please log into MyNTC.  Once you are in your MyNTC account, click on "Finances," then click on "View My Financial Aid," and choose the appropriate award year.
For loans, you must accept, edit, or decline your awards in order for them to be processed.

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
You have the choice to either have your refunds sent via electronic deposit to your bank account or if you don't have a bank account, to set up the Vibe Account through BankMobile Disbursements.
The BankMobile Vibe account is a checking account that offers the power to bank anywhere, anytime. Plus there’s no monthly fee for students. If you select the BankMobile Vibe account as your refund choice, you will receive a temporary virtual BankMobile debit card to use for phone or online purchases; until your physical card arrives in the mail.
Remember, even if you are not currently expecting a refund from NTC, we may have a refund for you in the future. Please go online to select your refund preference as soon as you receive your Refund Selection Kit with your personal code. You only need to make your refund selection once for all refunds from NTC.
Simply put, your refund preference is designed to provide you with increased choices and security when it comes to receiving your financial aid or school refunds.
