Students and perspective students at the National Labor College (NLC) have a new option to help pay their tuition and other education expenses. The NLC has been approved to offer federal financial aid to its students.
NLC President William Scheuerman says the availability of federal student loans and grants for NLC students will provide more working adults with
the opportunity to complete their college degree. Our college offers online programming, affordable, union subsidized tuition and low-cost credit assessment. Our goal is to remove the obstacles that working adults, many with full-time jobs and families, face when considering completing their college degrees.
The NLC will begin accepting applications for federal financial aid on its website (click here) July 6. Students must be admitted into the Bachelor of arts or Bachelor of Technical Professional Studies program and establish attendance in a minimum of six credit hours (half-time status) a semester to be eligible for a federal student loan. Students may be eligible for federal grants with less than half-time status.
Currently the NLC offers a variety of financial aid options for students including scholarships. Click here for more information.
Students considering attending the fall semester, which begins Sept. 8, must complete their application materials 30 days prior to the start of the semester. (Click here for more information an NLC applications.)
Applications will be received and processed by the NLC Office of Student Financial Services in partnership with Weber & Associates Inc. Loan certification and funding typically takes three to five weeks and can cover direct costs (tuition, room, board and fees) and estimates of indirect costs (e.g., travel and books).
