Institutional Aid

NPRC is working diligently toward institutional accreditation. Accreditation will allow enrolled, eligible students to receive federal and state financial aid for their approved coursework in a degree granting program. Currently we offer our students institutional aid to help with their educational expenses at NPRC.

All students are encouraged to apply for NPRC institutional aid using the online application found in the My NPRC Student Portal. Institutional aid is awarded to students who are enrolled in a 2-year Associate program, General Studies Certificate, or as a Dual Enrollment student (high school students taking college coursework) based on financial need. Tuition Waivers are awarded at four levels based upon financial need: 100% funding, 75% funding, 50% funding, and 25% funding. A textbook and course materials voucher may be awarded at a level in alignment with institutional aid received.

An Institutional Aid application must be submitted to be considered for Institutional Aid. Institutional Aid applications only need to be submitted once per academic year (Fall/Spring). Institutional aid awarded will be applied to your student billing account as pending aid until the aid is disbursed to the account. Students must maintain satisfactory academic progress to be eligible for institutional aid. If you plan to take summer coursework you must complete the Summer Aid Application to be considered.

Please read the following instructions carefully before applying through your My NPRC Student Portal.

Summer 2023 – New and returning students: If you plan to enroll in summer courses you must complete a Summer Aid application for consideration. (See form below)

Fall 2023 – New and returning students: This is the beginning of a new academic year and requires all new and returning students to apply for institutional aid. The Institutional Aid Application is available by logging into your My NPRC Student Portal and clicking on the “Financials” tab, then “Financial Aid Application”.  The priority date to apply for aid for Fall 2023 is Friday, July 28, 2023. Applications received after July 28 will be considered on a first come, first served basis as funding allows.

  • Once your application is received you will receive an email requesting income information. You will be asked to provide a signed copy of your 2021 tax return (first 2 pages of the actual return) and W2(s) to be eligible for consideration for institutional aid. If you are a dependent student, you will need to provide signed copies of your parent’s 2021 tax return and W2(s). These can be uploaded by logging into your My NPRC Student Portal under the “Financials Tab”, then the “Missing Documents tab”.
  • If submission of a 2021 tax return was not required, complete the appropriate NPRC Nontax Filer form for students or parents. These documents (Non-tax Flier form and supporting documentation) can be uploaded by logging into to your My NPRC Student Portal and clicking on the “Financials tab”, then “Missing Documents tab”.
  • You will also need to complete the NPRC Institutional Aid Signature Page. This is required for the student (and parent if dependent) to certify that the information provided on the institutional aid application is true and completed to the best of your knowledge.

Every effort will be made to process late applications in a timely manner, but the processing of late applications is not guaranteed by the start of classes and is subject to availability of funds. Late applicants should be prepared to have money for books and the student account balance.
