The objective of the Student Financial Aid Program at New Professions Technical Institute is to provide direct financial assistance to qualified students who otherwise would be unable to attend the Institution due to insufficient funds to meet tuition, fees, books, supplies, and other allowable educational expenses. The availability of Financial Aid funds is determined by the availability of such funds from the federal, state, institutional and private sources. The amount of financial aid that could be granted to a student is based upon the financial need of the applicant as determined by the federal system of needs analysis. Financial need is understood in the Federal Financial Aid Program and the difference between the cost of attending an educational institution and the amount the student and parent can be expected to contribute to cover such educational expenses. To determine the financial need of a student, NPTI uses the Federal Application for Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA) and the information provided by the applicant and student’s parents.
