Student Loans

Student loans are available to help you offset your educational expenses for a specific academic period. Borrowing through student loans should be your last alternative. Be sure to exhaust all other resources of financial assistance, including scholarships, state grants and work-study employment before applying for a student loan. Keep in mind that applying for a student loan too early may limit or exclude you from receiving grants or scholarships.

Eligibility requirements for federal student aid:

  • Not in default on a previous student loan or owe an overpayment on a previous grant
  • Enrolled in a program that leads to an associates degree or an eligible vocational certificate at NWACC
  • Making Satisfactory Academic Progress towards a degree or eligible certificate at NWACC
