Norwalk Community College provides a variety of financial aid programs in the form of scholarships, grants, loans and jobs to eligible students. The amount and type of aid received is dependent upon the student’s financial need as well as annual federal and state allocations. Please use the navigation links on the left hand side of our webpage for further assistance regarding our programs, how to apply, Students responsibilities when receiving Title IV aid, contacts, office hours, etc. Or on the right hand side are Financial Aid Policies and Forms that can be downloaded for your convenience.

Student Loans and Work-Study
Not all students are eligible for grants. However, students may be eligible for student loans and work-study. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to determine their eligibility for Federal financial aid that includes Federal grant, loan, or work-study assistance. For more information on applying for Federal student aid, go to http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/.
Net Price Calculator
This calculator is intended to provide estimated net price information (defined as estimated cost of attendance – including tuition and required fees, books and supplies, room and board (meals), and other related expenses – minus estimated grant and scholarship aid) to current and prospective students and their families based on what similar students paid in a previous year.
The estimates apply to full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students only.
