2023-2024 Financial Aid Forms

Aid year includes 2023 Summer, 2023 Fall & 2024 Spring.

Special Circumstances

Financial aid eligibility is determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which uses financial information from two years prior to determine a student’s financial need.  The Financial Aid Office recognizes that households can experience changes to income or other finances that are not reflected in this information from two years prior. These special circumstances can be reviewed on a case-by-case basis to analyze if this would create a change in the student’s eligibility for financial aid. Through a process called Professional Judgment, adjustments can be made on an individual basis to the information on the FAFSA or to a student’s Cost of Attendance.

Types of Special Circumstances:

  • Loss of employment
  • Change in employment that resulted in reduced income
  • Change in or loss of unemployment benefits
  • Separation/divorce
  • Death of parent or spouse whose info was reported on FAFSA
  • One-time taxable income distribution (examples: IRA, Pension distribution, back-year Social Security Payments, withdrew from retirement to meet unexpected needs, received inheritance)
  • Student's parent, if listed on FAFSA, has retired

Other situations that can be considered (for a re-evaluation of a student's Cost of Attendance):

  • High Cost Tuition programs
  • Unusually high medical or dental costs recently incurred
  • Excessive Medical Expense Special Circumstances that can be considered: excessive out of pocket medical expenses that exceed 11% of the tax-filer's adjusted gross income (AGI)

Please Note:  A change to the COA will typically not result in a student qualifying for additional financial aid. An increased COA typically allows the student to borrow additional loan funds, subject to annual loan limits and/or credit approval (for PLUS or private loans).

Circumstances which do not warrant a review include unusual credit card debt, high living expenses, private secondary school educational costs, or parent’s refusal to pay for college.

Since not all review requests will result in a change to a student’s financial aid offer we have placed an Aid Adjustment screening form in the MyNTC student center under “Billing & Financial Aid”. The first step of the process is to complete the Aid Adjustment screening form located within the MyNTC student center.

Please Note:  The aid adjustment screening form for the 2023-2024 aid year is available. The summer semester will not be included in any adjustments made to a student’s financial aid eligibility.

Once the screening form has been completed, you will be notified if your circumstances qualify for a financial aid adjustment. If so, you will be sent a form and asked to provide documentation in support of your request.

Per federal regulations related to making adjustments to FAFSA data, consideration will not be given to applications and /or supporting documentation received after April 28, 2024, or three weeks prior to your last day of attendance, whichever occurs first.
