New River Community College (NRCC) offers a variety of financial opportunities for students who need financial assistance.
The philosophy of the Financial Aid Office is that no qualified student shall be denied the privilege of attending college because of the lack of finances, if funds are available.
To determine if a student qualifies for aid, the Financial Aid Officer looks at need. Need is defined as the difference between the cost of attending the college and the total family contribution (parent contribution and/or student's contribution).
The criteria used for selecting student recipients involve both the computed need of the student, and the student's academic standing.
After a student has been accepted in an eligible curriculum at NRCC and has demonstrated need, the college tries to meet that need by offering aid which comes in the form of a "package" consisting of a grant, an on/off campus job, a scholarship, and/or a loan. The Military Selective Service Act of 1983-84 states that any student required to register with the Selective Service who fails to do so is ineligible for Title IV student aid Federal Pell Grant, FSEOG, FWS, Federal Perkins Loan (formerly NDSL), Federal Stafford (formerly GSL), Federal PLUS Loans, and State Incentive Grant Program.
