New River Community College (NRCC) offers a variety of financial opportunities for students who need financial assistance.

The philosophy of the Financial Aid Office is that no qualified student shall be denied the privilege of attending college because of the lack of finances, if funds are available.

To determine if a student qualifies for aid, the Financial Aid Officer looks at need. Need is defined as the difference between the cost of attending the college and the total family contribution (parent contribution and/or student's contribution).

The criteria used for selecting student recipients involve both the computed need of the student, and the student's academic standing.

After a student has been accepted in an eligible curriculum at NRCC and has demonstrated need, the college tries to meet that need by offering aid which comes in the form of a "package" consisting of a grant, an on/off campus job, a scholarship, and/or a loan. The Military Selective Service Act of 1983-84 states that any student required to register with the Selective Service who fails to do so is ineligible for Title IV student aid Federal Pell Grant, FSEOG, FWS, Federal Perkins Loan (formerly NDSL), Federal Stafford (formerly GSL), Federal PLUS Loans, and State Incentive Grant Program.


Detailed information about the Financial Aid application process can be found on our "How to Apply for Financial Aid" section of this website.

Application Deadlines: Application priority date for summer is March 15 and for fall is April 15. Applications received by the priority date will receive primary consideration for the upcoming academic year. Those received after the priority date will receive consideration only as funds are available. This application is valid for the 2016-2017 academic year only. Students must apply annually for financial aid. If you have questions, please call (540) 674-3615, or toll-free 855-874-6689, email fahelp@nr.edu, or you may write to the NRCC Office of Financial Aid, 5251 College Drive, Dublin, VA 24084.
