Applying for Student Loans (Federal Direct Loans)
Students interested in applying for a student loan must first complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This application is available via the internet at www.fafsa.ed.gov or a paper copy is available through the Financial Aid Office at NPC or through your high school counselor.
After the Student's Financial Aid package is complete, the student's eligibility for a student loan can be determined.

Once the loan has been offered and accepted in the Oasis account, students must complete the loan "To Do List" that is listed in the To Do section of their Oasis account:
- Loan To Do List for New Loan Students (never completed financial avenue with us)
- New student loan borrowers must first accept loans on OASIS. Once that is complete, each student will see the Financial Avenue course within five business days on Blackboard.
- Loan To Do List for Returning Loan Students (previously completed financial avenue in the last academic year)
- Loan disbursements will have the Origination Fee and the Guarantee Fee deducted automatically unless the fee(s) are paid by the lender. The funds will be electronically forwarded to the College by the disbursement date. Students who receive a student loan must be in at least 6 credit hours and maintain satisfactory academic progress to continue to be eligible to receive the loan funds.
