Welcome to the NEC Financial Aid Office!

We are committed to providing you with the information that you need to make informed decisions about financing your NEC education.

Our office administers a variety of programs to help you pay for education-related expenses—including NEC scholarships; federal and state grants; part-time student employment; and loans from federal and private agencies. Most of our applicants will be offered a Financial Aid package that combines several of these awards.

We believe that, by understanding your options—and your rights & responsibilities as a Financial Aid recipient—you are taking a critical step towards achieving financial success. We're here to help!
