NVCC students are eligible for the following grants:

Federal Pell Grant

The Federal Pell Grant Program provides need-based grants to low-income undergraduate and certain post-baccalaureate students to promote access to higher education.

Grant amounts are dependent on:

Unlike a loan, the grant does not have to be repaid.

Pell Grants are considered a foundation of federal financial aid, to which aid from other federal and nonfederal sources might be added.

Please note that federal regulations prohibit students from receiving Federal Pell Grant funds from more than one school during the same semester.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant

The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) program is for undergraduates with exceptional financial need.

Federal Pell Grant recipients with the lowest expected family contributions (EFCs) will be considered first for a FSEOG.

Just like Pell Grants, the FSEOG does not have to be repaid. 

Institutional and State Grants

The College provides institutional grants to help make up the difference between college costs and what a family can be expected to contribute through income, savings, loans and student earnings.

These grants do not have to be repaid and are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
