COMPLETE THE FAFSA
Create an FSA ID and use it to submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) . To qualify for federal assistance, you must meet all federal student aid eligibility requirements , NCMC admissions requirements and take courses leading to an NCMC degree.
Submit your FAFSA before the priority deadline to ensure your financial aid is processed before the tuition payment deadline. You must complete the FAFSA before February 1 to be automatically considered for State funds if you are a Missouri resident. Although the process of determining a student’s eligibility for federal student aid is basically the same for all applicants, the Financial Aid Office has the authority to make adjustments for special circumstances.
Approximately one in three students are randomly selected for verification. If you are selected for verification, complete the FAFSA Verification Process. If you are selected for verification, you will be notified by the Financial Aid Office.

Most financial aid is not automatically renewed. You must renew your financial aid each year. Federal aid programs, state financial assistance, and NCMC Foundation scholarships require that a FAFSA be filed each year to determine eligibility. Renewal criteria varies for each award. Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) must be maintained to continue receiving financial aid. Renewal guidelines and the SAP policy can be found in our Academic Catalog (Financial Aid).
