Financial Aid

PAYING FOR THE ECLI & FINANCIAL AID:

The cost of tuition to attend NVCC is covered through federal, state, and college financial aid. Students pay a nominal fee of $100 per semester to cover a portion of the cost of textbooks, access to computers, and childcare and tutoring (if needed).  

No interest loans are available to current ECLI students to cover other costs they may have, such as public transportation to and from campus.
