What's next?

Once your scholarship application has been submitted, you will receive an email confirmation. Most scholarship awards for the academic year are made during the summer months leading up to the start of the Fall semester. To be considered for any scholarship award, you must have submitted both your application for enrollment to NCC, your Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application, and be registered for six or more credit hours each semester. Please note that the sooner you register for your classes each semester, the sooner we can determine your eligibility for a scholarship - and the sooner you'll receive your award!

Application Process Details

The Scholarships Office will notify you directly when you receive an award, via your NCC e-mail. Continue to check your e-mail throughout the summer months leading up to the Fall semester. Also, be aware that we may need to call you about your award. Please make sure you have included a valid phone number on your student record where the Scholarships Office can contact you or leave a message. It is important for NCC and the Scholarships Office to have your most up-to-date contact information on file. If you need to update your address and/or phone number on your student record, submit your changes at MyNCC > Biographical Information on the NCC website, or complete and submit the Change of Student Information form to the Records Office.

**Scholarship awards are given for one academic year. The amount you receive may be divided between your Fall and Spring semesters. Once the award year is complete you must reapply. Also, a drop in your credit load or withdrawing from classes can affect both your Financial Aid and your continued eligibility for your scholarship award.
