    Apply for Financial Aid

    Apply for Financial Aid

    Concerned about paying for college? All degree-seeking students are encouraged to apply for financial aid. While not everyone will qualify for assistance, a student should never assume he or she is ineligible without applying first. Apply for financial aid each academic year that you wish to be considered.

    The FAFSA is now available as early as October 1 for the following academic year--NVCC's federal school code is 006982

    One of the most important tips for getting started is to apply for financial aid early.
