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.
Please complete the
FAFSA. This is the current FAFSA that runs from July 1, 2017 until June 30, 2018. Depending on whether you have completed a FAFSA before, you will see one of the two screens below. In either case, select the option that is circled in red in the illustration.

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.
