Grants, scholarships, and student loans can help make college affordable. Of course to qualify for financial aid, first you have to apply. We can help.

Financial aid is available from the federal government, state government and private sources; and it can come in the form of grants, student loans, and work study jobs. Estimate your NWTC expenses and determine your eligibility for financial aid.

Applying for Financial Aid

To receive all of the aid you are eligible for, it's important to understand the financial aid application process. You can apply for many types of financial aid at the same time using one form called the Free Application For Federal Aid (FAFSA).
