Financial Aid

National Paralegal College is a participant in the Title IV Federal Financial Aid Program. Students who qualify may receive Federal Pell Grants, Direct Subsidized, Unsubsidized, and/or Parent Plus Loans, to cover tuition and related expenses. Financial aid is available only for students in the degree programs.

All students applying for financial aid must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), with the NPC school code 041574.

After using the Net Price Calculator to calculate your estimated cost of attendance, please follow these steps to complete your financial aid application:

STEP 1: Create your FSA ID here.

If this is your first time filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and you haven't applied for an FSA ID, you should do so now. Your FSA ID is what allows you to complete the FAFSA paper-free! You'll need your FSA ID to make online corrections to your FAFSA, including changing your name and address, or adding/changing the name of a school to receive your application data. The FSA ID is also your identifier to let you access personal information in various U.S. Department of Education systems.

STEP 2: Start your FAFSA application.

Please complete the 2016-2017 FAFSA.

The Department of Education will generally process your FAFSA in approximately 3-5 days. Once your FAFSA has been processed, proceed to STEP 3.

If you have not yet done so, submit a school application. You will then receive a username and password from the NPC admissions staff that you can use to log on to the site.

If you are selected for verification, please see the 2016-17 FAFSA Verification Standards.

STEP 3: E-sign your enrollment agreement

To begin the electronic signature process, log on to the website and click "Enrollment Agreement" or "Forms" on the Student Menu.

STEP 4: Your NPC required forms

Please complete the Title IV Authorization, Personal Data Sheet and Attestation of Graduation form. Please submit these forms electronically. To do so, log in to your NPC account and the link to the NPC Electronic Form Submission System will be visible on the Financial Aid page (just below in this paragraph)

STEP 5: Contact the NPC Admissions Office to plan your course schedule.

STEP 6: You will be sent an award letter via email after you start your classes.

The award letter will give you a breakdown of your financial aid offer for this academic year. The award letter will include amounts for "Room & Board," "Books & Supplies," and "Personal." This is called the "Cost of Attendance" (COA). NPC will only charge you tuition & fees. The award letter will arrive via e-mail to the address you have provided. Please type the amounts you would like to receive in the indicated boxes and then initial on the lines that follow. You do not have to accept the full amount of the offer. Remember that you will need to repay your student loans back when you graduate or become less than a part-time student. After you electronically sign the award letter, the NPC Financial Aid Office will receive it via e-mail.

Don’t forget! You must apply for financial aid each year. Applying for financial aid is a yearly process. You can submit your renewal FAFSA as early as January 1 of each year.
