   GOOD NEWS on Textbook Purchases using Financial Aid

We’ve worked out an agreement with Follett Bookstores to allow students with PELL and/or student loans to charge textbooks and required course materials! We are sending a file to the Gainesville, Corinth, and Flower Mound stores with estimates of aid and they will allow charges tomorrow (Aug. 26) through next Friday (Sept. 2).

Some disbursements will still go out periodically, both direct deposits and checks, so we realize that there is a possibility you may have access to more aid than you were awarded. But we wanted you to have the required course materials so you can be successful in your classes. Once all aid is dispersed, we will notify students who owe anything back.

Also, if your classes are "ineligible" for financial aid due to not being on the proper degree plan, please see an advisor in the Counseling/Testing offices.

Good luck with your classes! We want you to be successful at NCTC!

Update on Financial Aid Disbursements from the Business Office

Thank you for your understanding as we advance through our computer conversion! It’s going to make things better!!

  1. Financial Aid refunds were scheduled early this semester, and we are processing in batches to push the funds out as quickly as possible.

  2. You may receive multiple disbursements, so don’t be alarmed if the first one doesn’t contain all of your expected aid.

  3. Be sure to check your student financial aid portal for up-to-date information.

  4. The direct deposits have begun and checks are being mailed for those of you who didn’t get to make the direct deposit designation first.

  5. New DOE regulations for direct deposits came at the same time, so additional upgrades to equipment caused delays in your ability to get your debit card/ID, as well as clinical badges.

  6. Even though you receive a check for the first disbursement, you can still go onto MyNCTC and make your direct deposit designation (if you’re 18 or older) for the remaining disbursements.
