Financial Aid Payments

The Bursar's Office handles the payment and refund side of the Financial Aid process. This means that we receive the payments, whether they are loans or grants, and then apply those funds to the financial aid recipient's tuition bill.

Financial aid, including student loans and grants, are received by the Bursar's Office on behalf of students. The funds are then applied to the student's tuition bill. Any remaining funds are refunded to the student and may also be used for one of the following educational purposes:

Books and Supplies: Use up to 100% of your credit balance (maximum allowed $1,000) to purchase required textbooks and supplies at any NCC Bookstore. Amounts and percentages of credit allowed for purchases are set by NCC each semester and NCC reserves the right to decrease allowable amounts in future semesters.

Note: Certain types of third party funding may not be available until 2 weeks prior to the start of the semester and may only allow purchase of required textbooks. 

Only students with financial aid can access a book credit. 

Future/Prior Session: You can request to carry funds to a future or prior semester.

NCC Childcare: Pay for childcare services received at the NCC Children's Center.

To transfer funds to a future or prior session or childcare account, visit the Bursar's Office at either the Main or Monroe campus enrollment office to fill out a transfer request form. Print off and bring in for processing the Account Authorization form (PDF). (Mailed in forms cannot be processed unless notarized by a licensed notary).

Refund: Excess financial aid that is not used for other purposes will be refunded to the student. Read more information on financial aid student refunds.
