About Financial Aid

The financial aid available to students at NPTI is dependent on the availability of funds from federal, state, institutional, and private sources. The amount of financial aid awarded to a student is determined based on their financial need as determined by a federal needs analysis.

Financial need is calculated as the difference between the cost of attending NPTI and the expected contribution from the student and their parents.

NPTI uses the Federal Application for Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA) and information provided by the applicant and their parents to determine the student's financial need.

New Professions Technical Institute, Inc. is authorized by the U.S. Department of Education to assist its qualified students in obtaining financial aid funds from Institutional and Federal Financial Aid Programs.

Financial Programs

Federal Pell Grants

Grants are Financial Aid Programs of “gift” aide, which are awarded to students based upon financial need. Due to the nature of these Aid Programs, Grants do not require to be repaid. Students may apply for the Federal Pell Grant. The Federal Pell Grant is usually considered the first source of student assistance. The Pell Grant amount that can be awarded to a qualified student is based on the student’s Expected Family Contribution (EFC), the Cost of Attendance (COA), and the student’s enrollment status. The Federal Pell Grant is not available for students who have earned a bachelor’s degree or higher weather in the United States or abroad.

Federal Seog

A Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is for undergraduates with exceptional financial needs, which means students with the lowest Expected Family Contributions (EFCs) and gives priority to students who receive Federal Pell Grants. The amount of funds that a student can receive depends on when they apply their level of need, and the funding level of the school. An FSEOG does not have to be repaid.

Federal Work Study Program

The Federal Work-Study Program provides jobs for undergraduate and graduate students with financial need by allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. The program encourages community service work and work related to the student’s course of study. Employment is part-time only. An application can be made through the School’s Financial Aid Department. Eligibility is based on financial need and the availability of funds.

Student Loans

Federal Student loans are available to students. These loans are made directly to students to help pay for their education. The student loans must be repaid. Please consult with the Financial Aid Officer of the school and refer to The Student Guide from the US Department of Education. For additional information, here

From time to time, the United States Department of Education will select a financial aid applicant for verification. What does this mean? Only that the Department wants to verify that the school is collecting correct information and that the applicant is giving correct information. This is a routine process and does not mean that you have been selected for any other reason. Do not be afraid of this process. It is not an audit or investigation, but simply a routine check on data.

March 14, 1986, the Department of Education published the Student Assistance General Provisions and the Pell Grant Program Verification of Applicant Information as final regulations in the FEDERAL REGISTER. These regulations are in effect for all Title IV Federal Financial Aid Programs for the award year.

New Professions Technical Institute, Inc. (NPTI) is providing you with the information you will need to understand and comply with the Verification Process. If you should have any additional questions beyond what is listed below, please ask your Financial Aid Counselor to explain the process and its requirements.

Verification is the process the Department of Education uses to check the accuracy and validity of the information that a student provides when applying for Federal Financial Aid.

Verification covers the following Title IV Federal Aid Programs:

1. Federal Pell Grants

2. Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG) 3. Federal Work-Study (FWS)

4. Federal Perkins Loan Program

The selection of an application for verification review does not indicate that NPTI believes that the information you have provided is incorrect.

Your application is subjected to a multiple audit screening process, and listed below are some of the common scenarios:

1 - Random Sample based on the review of information.

2 - Data checked for consistency and logic based on the common edits for each Item on the FAFSA

3 - Verification from the Social Security Administration

4 - Verification from the Selective Service Administration

5 - Verification from the Immigration and Naturalization Service

You will need to have your parent(s) submit the above information to qualify for Financial Assistance to attend your program.

Students that are selected to have their information verified are required to submit the requested information within 30 days from the date that the student is notified. If the information is delayed in being submitted to the Financial Aid office the AWARD that was given may not be available to the student, NPTI recognizes that it may be necessary to contact outside sources to collect the necessary documents and asks that the student keep the Financial Aid Office aware of any expected delays.

If you, the student fail to submit the required documentation for your file when requested, your financial aid award will be removed, and you will not be eligible to receive assistance from the Federal Title IV Aid Programs.

If the information you provide for verification is not the same as the information that you originally reported to the Financial Aid Officer and on the application for Federal Aid, a correction will be required. This correction application will produce a "NEW" award that may be higher or lower than the original award. Any reduction in your aid will be your responsibility to pay.

The Student’s Financial Aid is solely the responsibility of the student. If the Institution does not receive the Financial Aid funds while the student is in the school, the student is responsible for paying all tuition and fees related to attending New Professions Technical Institute, Inc.
