All students should apply for financial aid whether they think they will qualify or not. Completing your FAFSA is the gateway to unlocking all of your potential financial aid options like grants, scholarships, work-study, and more. To complete the FAFSA, you’ll need to gather some important documents (like your federal tax information, other income information, and social security number). After you submit your FAFSA, please respond promptly to any requests for additional information from the NCC Financial Aid Office.
Here’s how to get started:
- File the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at studentaid.gov.
- Complete the PA State Grant Form if you’re a resident of Pennsylvania at PHEAA.org.
- Apply for NCC Scholarships. We have one of the largest scholarship programs in PA and award over 600 each year. Review our scholarships here and then apply here.
Once you have submitted your FAFSA and applied for any additional aid, you can move onto step 3 while our team is processing your information.
If you need help, contact our Financial Aid Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-861-5510.
In order to set you up for success, it’s important for us to review your educational history to determine your placement. Therefore, we require all students to submit official transcripts from any high school(s) or college(s) attended. If you took AP exams, you can request a score report through your College Board account. If you earned a GED or state high school equivalency diploma, you may send a copy to NCC.
Official transcripts must be sealed and can be sent electronically or via mail to the addresses below:
- Email: email@example.com
- Mail: Northampton Community College, Processing Center, 3835 Green Pond Rd., Bethlehem, PA 18020
If students can’t be placed into college-level English or Mathematics using their high school record, SAT scores, or previous college courses, then it’s likely placement testing will be required. Placement testing information can be found here. If you have any questions about placement, contact the Academic Advising Office at 610.861.5346 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
New and returning students will be assigned an Academic Advisor and must connect with them prior to registering for classes. Your Advisor will assist you with registering for courses, connecting with college resources and ensuring a successful start at NCC!
Guest and visiting students are not assigned Advisors and should utilize drop-in advising for assistance.
All students must connect with an Academic Advisor prior to registering for classes. Your Advisor assist you with understanding program requirements, academic planning, and transfer exploration.
