Full and Part Time Students Encouraged to Tap Federal Financial Aid (August 26, 2008)

Students who are seeking to advance their education by attending the Northern Marianas College still have up until September 12, 2008 to apply for federal financial aid for the Fall 2008 semester.

Qualified students who enroll full time (12 or more credits) can qualify for up to $4,731 per year or two semesters. Even those individuals who are working full time can obtain federal financial aid by enrolling as a part time student. Part time students can be awarded up to $3,548 per year.

To be eligible for federal financial aid, a student must be either a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen (including permanent residents/green card holders). They also must have graduated from high school or completed the GED program. Pell grants, a type of federal aid, are based on household income and size (need-based grant).

To apply for federal financial aid, students need the following:

  • 2007 1040 tax return if filed already (both student and parents)
  • W-2 forms if not filing for the year (both student and parents)
  • A copy of high school diploma or transcript
  • A copy of birth certificate, passport, and/or green card
  • Worksheet verification form (Obtained at the NMC Financial Aid Office)
  • Other documents requested by NMC Financial Aid Office.

Financial aid staff members at the College will gladly provide assistance in explaining financial aid options and filling out financial aid forms. For additional information regarding financial aid options, please contact Daisy Manglona-Propst at 234-5498 Ext. 1527 or email [email protected]
