How to Apply for Financial Aid

To apply for financial aid at Northampton Community College a student must:

  • Complete and submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) via the Web at A student and parent can create an FSA ID to electronically sign the FAFSA.
  • NCC's Federal Code for the FAFSA is 007191

New students should not wait to be admitted to NCC before applying for financial aid. Returning students must annually reapply for financial aid for each academic year a student wants to be considered for financial aid.

The Northampton Community College financial aid priority application date is May 15. Fall students who complete their financial aid application by the priority date will be notified of their eligibility for aid before tuition is due for the following Fall semester. The priority application date for the Spring semester is October 1st of the previous year. While financial aid applications are accepted throughout the year, it is important to meet the priority application dates if a student expects financial aid to help pay his/her semester tuition and fee charges by the tuition due date.
