Dear students,

We know this has been a challenging time for many of you as we all respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

During this time NMC has remained committed to your safety and to limiting the disruption to learning as much as possible. This includes working to help ease the financial hurdles to your education.

NMC has applied for funding through the Federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to provide emergency financial aid grants to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus.

In addition, the NMC Foundation has emergency funds for scholarships.


  • All students can fill out the application.
  • Only students who have completed a FAFSA and qualify for federal financial aid are eligible for CARES Act funds.
  • All students may be eligible for other types of aid from NMC.


If you are eligible for Federal Financial Aid, make sure to complete the FAFSA. Others, just complete the Emergency Aid Application.

Aid will be awarded in the order of application.The amount will be based on:

  • type of emergency financial need
  • prior known financial need
  • number of credits enrolled
