Next Steps...

Submit FAFSA

Students should immediately apply for financial aid by filing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Information is availabe on the Financial Aid webpage.

Housing Health Form

A Housing Health Form should be completed as soon as a student is offered housing, as it is a requirement to live on-campus. CLICK HERE to download the NCC Health Form. 

Please note: For the Fall 2021 semester, all resident students will need to be vaccinated for COVID-19. 

Timing of Housing Offers

Applications will be considered only after the $125 application and deposit fee has been submitted.  The Office of Housing and Residence Life will evaluate housing applications and offer housing agreements contingent on the date and time the housing application is received and an on-campus housing recommendation form showing little to no disciplinary history.


  • Fall Applicants - $100 deposit is refundable until July 1 once a housing agreement is signed.
  • Spring Applicants - $100 deposit is non-refundable after a contract is signed (this is due to less timing before the semester starts).
