Financial Aid Events

  • FAFSA just got an upgrade
    Say hello to the new, user-friendly 2024–25 FAFSA.

  • We are starting to receive FAFSA data, but are unable to process it until our systems are updated as there have been significant issues with the FAFSA records. NMC will process FAFSAs as soon as possible. We expect to award in mid to late April.
