Student ID or Social Security Number
If you have been awarded state financial aid from the State of Washington, your designation on this online form will document your choice for funds to be applied directly into your student account or to be given directly to you in the form of a check. A state grant or scholarship recipient has the following two choices:
NWIC Student Account: Choosing to have the funds deposited to your student account permits the aid to be automatically credited toward expenses you may owe to the institution. This option allows faster processing of any refunds of financial aid proceeds that may be due you.
Directly to Student: Choosing to have state financial aid funds given directly to you means that state student aid will not be automatically available to pay for tuition and fees. You are responsible for using the funds to pay for educational expenses including any expense you owe to the institution.
How do you want state funding delivered?
I understand that the aid offered is for a full-time course load (12 credits) unless otherwise specified on the award letter. I agree that if I withdraw or cease to attend or carry the required number of credits, I will notify the Student Financial Services office and, if necessary, arrange for the repayment of aid advanced to me for which I am no longer eligible.
I understand that I am required to attend classes to earn financial aid. If I withdraw from classes during the quarter or do not earn any credits, I may be required to repay all or part of my aid received.
I understand that I must make satisfactory academic progress to receive Financial Aid. Financial Aid may be canceled for failure to make satisfactory progress. This means that I must complete my degree within an established time frame, maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average, and successfully complete the minimum number of credits each quarter for which aid is received. I understand that I am responsible for knowing the information contained in the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy.
I must enroll in an eligible program of study and the classes I take must be required for that program.
I understand that the offer of aid is dependent upon federal and state allocations to the college. Insufficient funds may result in a reduction in the amount of aid or a change in the type of aid offered to me.
I understand that the award is based on information I have provided about my financial aid status. I agree to report to the Financial Aid Office any changes in my financial situation, including, but not limited to: changes in marital status, address, Washington State residency status, any additional income, scholarships, or other funds I may receive after returning the award letter. I understand that these changes may result in a reduction of awards and/or require repayments of aid already received.
If I am offered an aid package but chose not to enroll for one or more quarters during the academic year, I will inform the financial aid office of my intent to return or I will forgo any non-Pell awards in following quarters.
If I deliberately falsify, misrepresent, or fail to fully disclose information on my financial aid application, I can be terminated from financial aid. If I receive funds based on misrepresented information, I will be required to repay the funds and may be reported to the US Department of Education, and/or other financial aid governing bodies, for possible fraud.
I declare that I will use all funds I receive (federal and state) for the expenses associated with cost of attendance at Northwest Indian College. If any information on this online form changes, I will submit a new form.
I agree to read, understand, and abide by the Financial Aid Handbook, located at https://www.nwic.edu/life-on-campus/financial-resources/.
