If Part I on your SAR states that you have been selected for the verification process, submit a Verification worksheet to NCTC along with a signed copy of your federal tax return. If appropriate, include your parent's federal tax return.
Please Note: Additional documents may be required due to individual circumstances. The Financial Aid Office will notify you by mail if we need further or additional documentation.
Once we receive your FAFSA information from the Department of Education we will e-mail you a Financial Aid Award notice that includes need-based scholarships and grants for students who qualify, work-study jobs, and loans.
Please Note: A Financial Aid Award notice is sent out showing aid as of the mail date. If additional aid comes in or updated information is received, you may receive an amended award notification.
Money received from a Pell Grant or Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG) will be applied to your student account at NCTC approximately three weeks after class starts.
Any remaining funds will be direct deposited to the student ID Master Card
Use of funds
Financial Aid funds are used only to pay for your education expenses at the school that is giving you the money. Education expenses include school charges such as tuition, room and board, fees and indirect expenses such as books, supplies, equipment, dependent child care expenses, transportation and rental or purchase of a personal computer
Students on work-study get paid on the 25th of each month (paycheck will be based on hours worked from approximately the 18th of the previous month to the 18th of the current month).
State financial aid will be disbursed as soon as possible after receipt of money from the state. However, state money will not be distributed before Pell Grants each semester.
