Thank you for choosing Norwalk Community College! NCC encourages ALL students to apply for financial aid using the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.gov.

Financial Aid Office personnel are available to assist students in all phases of the financial aid process and answer any questions pertaining to financial aid.

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.

Priority Deadlines and Student’s Responsibility

Students are expected to initiate the financial aid process in a timely manner. It is your responsibility to complete the application on time, check the status of your application, ensure all requirements are met, and ask for assistance if needed. Late applications will be awarded on a funds available basis. Please review all links on our web page so you can become aware of the policies our office must follow.

Student Loans and Work-Study

Not all students receive financial aid. During the Fall 2018 semester 48.9% of our students enrolled for college were awarded grants/scholarships aid. Students may also 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.

Descriptions of financial aid programs are subject to change, due to possible changes in federal, state, and College policies, and/or due to changes in funding levels. The Financial Aid Services Office will make every reasonable effort to keep applicants and students aware of any such changes.
