The NEC Financial Aid Office administers a broad range of financial aid programs, including scholarships, loans, work-study, and grants. These funds may come from a variety of sources—institutional (NEC), federal, state, and private. We work closely with government agencies, student loan lenders, and private organizations to help families finance their postsecondary education.
