Financial Aid
Spring 2022 Financial Aid Reminders – things to remember as you register for your Spring courses!
Financial Aid can only be used for courses required towards completion of your current degree. If you register for courses not needed for your degree, you will not be eligible for federal or state financial aid (this includes federal student loans).

-          If you are a student loan borrower, you will need to complete a new loan application for Spring 2022. The loan application can be found here

-          If you are a student required to complete a 150% Academic Plan, you must follow the classes listed on your most recently approved plan. If you withdrew from or failed any Fall 2021 courses or you register in courses that differ from those listed on your Spring 2022 plan, you will need to complete a new plan. That form can be found here.  

-          If you are already registered, the last day to have financial aid forms turned in or make payments for Spring 2022 courses is January 5 at noon. Please check your N.O.W. account through your student portal to access any missing financial aid paperwork.

-          Remember to check your WVNCC e-mail periodically over the holiday break. Additional forms may be needed once Fall 2021 grades are reported. If you need additional forms, the financial aid office will notify you via your WVNCC e-mail. If additional forms are required, be sure to return them to us by January 5!
Introducing Brightspace
Coming January 2022! 

WVNCC will begin using Brightspace D2L to provide its instructional materials for on campus classes and for distance learning courses. Blackboard will no longer be used to provide online learning. Students will be given tutorials and access to support before the spring semester starts. Stay Tuned for more details.
We'll text you!
We are launching a texting service at WVNCC that will be here to support you throughout the year. 
We are bringing the Thundering Chicken to life as an SMS chatbot as a way for us to support you, answer your questions and communicate important information throughout the winter break. It is also a great way for Northern to hear your feedback and create a virtual community!
Be on the lookout for a text from us – we promise it's not spam!
The fastest way to stay connected!
