Welcome to the Financial Aid Office!
At Northern Essex Community College we are committed to assisting students and their families meet the costs of a college education.
Financial aid can help you pay for the costs of attending NECC including tuition and fees, books, and other costs (room and board, transportation, and personal costs). Most NECC students receive some sort of financial aid, so we encourage you to apply today!
You can complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at any time after January 1st 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 1st. 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.
