Get Ahead: FAFSA News and Your Estimated NEC Award in Under 10 Minutes

February 01, 2024

Navigating the financial aid landscape can feel overwhelming, especially with the delayed FAFSA this year. Here are some steps that you can take right now to answer, “How much aid will I get?” and “What will it cost me to attend New England College next year?”

1. FAFSA Completion: If you’ve completed the FAFSA and included New England College, fantastic! Your information is in good hands. Our NEC Financial Aid Team is gearing up to send you a detailed award letter via email and postal mail, with text notifications if you shared your mobile number on your FAFSA, expected at this time by the end of March.

Haven’t completed the FAFSA yet? No worries! Go to fafsa.gov today and use school code 002579. Once we receive your information from the Department of Education, your award will be on its way.

2. NEC Net Price Calculator: Want an estimate of your award in under 10 minutes and additional $500 scholarship? Complete the NEC Net Price Calculator and get an estimate that’s as close as it gets to your actual award. New incoming students who complete this by March 15 will qualify for an additional $500 renewable scholarship!

3. Personalized Assistance: Have questions or need guidance? Our Financial Aid Counselors are here for you. Schedule a 1:1 appointment and remember: No question is too big or too small. We’re dedicated to ensuring you get the support you need. If you’d prefer to email, reach us at sfs@nec.edu. Or you can drop in for weekly virtual financial aid office hours every Thursday any time between 3:00 and 5:00 p.m. EST.
