Investing in your education is a great investment in your future! Northland offers assistance to those requiring financial aid and can help you explore a variety of funding sources that are available to you.
Most all students at Northland Community & Technical College are eligible to receive some type of financial aid. Get started with our Financial Aid Checklist.
Apply for financial aid EARLY and remember to REAPPLY for each school year in attendance. (A school year consists of fall, spring and summer semesters).
To receive your financial aid funds for grants, loans, scholarships and work-study you must sign up for direct deposit. This will require you to have a bank account, checking or savings, to receive your funds.
Apply for a personal PIN number from the Department of Education. This PIN number works as an electronic signature on the federal financial aid application. It will also be needed to access student's financial aid account information and to apply for student loans. (For students required to supply parents information, one parent will also need to apply for a PIN number).
Once you recieve your PIN number, electronically complete the financial aid application at www.fafsa.gov.
Did you know that most male students must be registered with the Selective Service System before they are eligible to receive student loans, Pell Grants, or other forms of school financial assistance? That's been the law since 1982. You can stay eligible by registering online with Selective Service.
