How to Apply for Financial Aid
New students must complete the following three steps by March 1 in order to be considered for scholarships:
1) Complete the Application for Admission.
2) Complete the NTS General Scholarship/Grant Application here
3) Complete the FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov
Students who did not receive scholarship aid at the time of admission, may complete a scholarship application each year following the completion of one semester and nine (9) credit hours. The deadline dates are: March 1 for the fall semester and November 1 for the spring semester.
Federal Student Aid
To secure a Federal Direct Loan, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. You may also download a PDF of the application. The NTS Financial Aid Office will contact you after you submit the FAFSA application with information on what additional steps need to be taken to secure a Federal Stafford Loan.
Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans are available to eligible students enrolled in at least 5 credit hours during the fall, spring, and summer semesters. If a FAFSA has been filed for the student, eligibility will automatically be calculated and the loan amount will be offered to the student in an official letter sent along with the student’s billing statement.
For those students who are seeking a payment plan to cover tuition and fees, you may secure a short-term loan. This loan requires the student to pay back to America’s Christian Credit Union the loan amount borrowed by the end of the semester. Contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.
Please keep in mind that for each set of application forms there are different sets of rules, regulations, deadlines, instructions, etc. Please read each carefully and follow all instructions exactly. Failure to do so could delay the process of your application. Plan ahead: only by meeting the preference dates will you receive prompt consideration. Accurately complete all forms to prevent misinterpreted information. Keep copies of all correspondence & completed forms.
