This allows sufficient time to determine your award. The dates are the same every year. Priority deadlines are set for every semester. The submission of a financial aid application does not guarantee the award of financial aid money.
To meet a financial aid priority deadline, you MUST:
- Have been admitted to –OR– be currently enrolled in a degree-seeking program at Northland Pioneer College.
- Have submitted a FAFSA application online to the federal government with the results received by NPC.
- Supply ALL additional documentation (see Required Documents tab) required for application verification to the NPC Financial Aid Office BEFORE the priority deadline.
If you do NOT complete all three steps listed above BEFORE the semester priority deadline, the NPC Financial Aid Office will be unable to determine your award before the start of classes. That means you will have to pay for your tuition, fees and books out of your own pocket or budget your payments through e-Cashier Payment Plan. If you do not pay your tuition and fees in full or make payment arrangements by the NPC payment due dates for the semester in which you are enrolled, you will be dropped from all your classes.
You may still complete a FAFSA application even after the priority deadline has past. However, your FAFSA application and all additional required documents may not be submitted any later than the last day of classes for the semester in which you were enrolled. Files completed after the last day of the semester the student attended are usually not eligible for financial aid. See the academic calendar for the last day of the semester.
Current students may check to see if all required federal aid documents have been received by NPC by logging into their MyNPC account and then clicking the "Other MyNPC Info" on the left side of the page.
New to NPC
