Applying for Aid and Student Eligibility
Apply for Financial Aid Today!
Financial Aid can make earning your college degree a reality. There are many types of aid [link to types of aid] you can receive, and it can help pay for tuition and fees, books, and other personal costs. We have outlined the eligibility requirements and the application process below, and we are here to help if you have any questions – contact us!
You can complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at any time after October 1 to receive funds for the following academic year, but apply as early as possible since some grant funds are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. The priority deadline for the state of Massachusetts is May 1. Although applications are accepted throughout the year, some state funds are awarded only to those who meet this deadline.
You must complete a FAFSA each academic year.

How Will I Know if I Have Been Approved?
Once your application for financial aid is complete, a counselor will review your file and package your Financial Aid Award. You will receive an email at your NECC email account notifying you that your financial aid package is complete and view-able in Self Service. A detailed award letter will be sent to your NECC email account and your financial aid package will be viewable through the myNECC portal.
