Financial Aid Process

Step 1 – Application

  • There are several good reasons for completing the FAFSA online, but the most important reasons are that it is faster and more accurate.  You can complete the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov
  • You may also complete a paper FAFSA.
  • Regardless of which way you complete the FAFSA, be sure to use New River Community and Technical  College’s school code 039603.
  • To complete the FAFSA you will need
  • Your and your parents’ (if applicable) social security numbers
  • Your and your parents’ (if applicable) income information
  • If applying on-line, be sure to sign your application electronically using your FSA ID.
  • Be sure to print a copy of your completed FAFSA and your Submission Confirmation before exiting.
  • This information will then be transmitted to you and the Financial Aid Office in the form of a Student Aid Report.

Step 2 – SAR Review

  • After completing the FAFSA, you should receive your Student Aid Report (SAR) within 2-4 weeks. If you provided an e-mail address the SAR will be sent to your e-mail address within 2-3 days.
  • Once you receive your SAR, review it for accuracy.
  • Be sure that New River Community and Technical College is listed
  • If you need to make corrections please contact your Financial Aid Representative.
  • After reviewing the SAR, you are encouraged to contact a Financial Aid Representative on your campus to see if there is any additional paperwork to be completed. If you need to make corrections please notify your Financial Aid Representative.

Step 3 – Verification

  • If your file is selected for verification, you will be asked to complete a Verification Worksheet and provide additional documentation.
  • Please supply the requested material promptly in order to speed up the processing of your financial aid file.
  • If you do not receive a letter from the Financial Aid Office within 1-2 weeks after receiving your SAR, please contact a Financial Aid Representative.

Students wishing to receive a Student Loan

  • Notice: Students who wish to receive student loans must request the loan when completing the verification Data Sheet. You may also request the loan by contacting your Financial Aid Representative.
  • If the student is eligible for the loan, it will be added to the award. The student needs to complete a Loan Eligibility Information form with their Financial Aid Representative.
  • Before a student loan can pay to your account, first time borrowers will need to complete an Entrance Interview at www.studentloans.gov . First time borrowers will also need to sign a Master Promissory Note at www.dlenote.ed.gov. (Please wait 24 – 48 hours after completing the Loan Eligibility Information form to complete the Master Promissory Note.) This promissory note is valid for ten academic years.

Step 4 – Award

  • After returning the requested verification information to the Financial Aid Office, you should receive an Award Letter in approximately 2-4 weeks.
  • If you do not receive your award letter within 2-4 weeks, inquire with the Financial Aid Office.
  • Once you receive your award letter, review it carefully and read the accompanying material.
  • Return your completed award letter to the Financial Aid Office.

Step 5 – Payment

  • After you register for classes you will receive a Billing Invoice.  Be sure to follow the directions on your invoice.
  • If you have a positive balance on your billing invoice, you will need to make payment arrangements or inquire about the status of your financial aid.
  • If you have a negative balance, this indicates that you will be receiving a financial aid refund check, which is financial aid that is leftover after your bill is paid.
  • Notice:  You must contact the Business Office regarding your bill, no matter what your balance is.
Reminder:  You must reapply for financial aid by renewing the FAFSA yearly.  Beginning with the 2017-2018 award year the FAFSA will be available each October 1st.
 
At any point throughout the financial aid process you may speak with a Financial Aid Representative for more information (Financial Aid).
