Student’s Responsibility as a Financial Aid Recipient

  1. A satisfactory academic record each term is a prerequisite to the continuation of financial aid. The student’s academic performance must meet the requirements for “Satisfactory Academic Progress” (see requirements following).
  2. It is assumed that the financial situation of the student and the family will continue as indicated on the application. Students are asked to report any significant changes to the Financial Aid Office as soon as they occur, including any scholarships or other awards received for their college education.
  3. Application and Verification deadlines:The Department of Education must have processed a Student Aid Report (SAR) or Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR) with the student's official Student Aid Index (SAI) before the student became ineligible (i.e., typically, this is the last date of exams for the last term enrolled unless the student withdrew from all classes—see "Treatment of Title IV Aid When a Student Withdraws").
  4. Students selected for Verification of their FAFSA data must submit all verification documentation requested within 120 days after the date the student became ineligible (i.e., typically, this is the last date of exams for the previous term enrolled unless the student withdrew from all classes - see "Treatment of Title IV Aid When a Student Withdraws"). The student must submit documents during this timeframe to ensure the student is considered eligible for federal financial aid. If corrections are necessary to a student's FAFSA data because of the verification process, the school will attempt to make those corrections for the student if possible. However, the student must make some corrections, as the school may need more information. The student will be notified by email if they must make corrections. If the student's EFC or Title IV aid amounts change because of corrections to the FAFSA, the student will be notified via their Message Center in their SIS Student Center. NRCC will, by use of the OIG Fraud Hotline, hold financial aid disbursements for and refer to the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Education for investigation of any credible information indicating that an applicant for Title IV may have engaged in fraud or other criminal conduct.
  5. The student must notify the Financial Aid Office staff of any changes in the following instances:
    • any decrease and/or increase in the number of credit hours;
    • change of program of study;
    • change from part-time to full-time status;
    • change in name, address, or telephone number;
  6. If the student wishes to cancel their aid after an award has been made but before disbursements, they should email the financial aid office from their NRCC email account to request the same. Please include the Student ID number.

A word of caution: Courses that meet off-schedule (e.g.) beginning and ending different from traditional term, can affect your enrollment status, thereby changing the amount of your award. Canceled classes and classes withdrawn during the add-drop period can also change your enrollment status, thereby reducing the amount of your grants.
