NUC University offers you the following supplementary financial aid.

State

Scholarship Program for Students with Academic Talent (BETA) – awarded to students with an average of 3.00 or more, enrolled full-time (12 credits or more) and who have an annual family income no greater than the equivalent of 80% of the median income in Puerto Rico.

Federals

FSEOG- Federal scholarship program for students enrolled at the undergraduate level who have not yet completed high school requirements. To be eligible for this scholarship, the student must show extreme financial need. National University College, by federal requirement, must give priority to students eligible for the Federal Pell Grant and with an expected family contribution of zero.

Self-help

Federal Work-Study Program: The federal government provides from 75% to 100% of the funds for this program and National University College completes the match with institutional funds. Participants are assigned a part-time job for which they receive a salary that will help defray their education expenses. The student has the opportunity to work in different departments within the Institution, public agencies and in private non-profit organizations. Payment is made monthly at the end of the month, according to the hours worked. The salary to be earned from this program is the federal minimum wage in validity and in some occasions (depending on the complexity of the work carried out by the student) he is paid more than the federal minimum.

The Federal Department of Education requires that all educational institutions that receive federal Title IV funds use the federal formula for determining the financial aid to be offered to their students. Financial need is defined as the difference between the estimated expenses of studies (cost of education) and how much is the expected family contribution (EFC) of the student’s family to subsidize the educational expenses of the student.

If the cost of education is greater than the expected family contribution, the student may be financially eligible for all financial aid programs subject to need. On the contrary, if the cost of education is less than the expected family contribution, the student is ineligible due to financial need for financial assistance programs subject to need.

This document and the ISIR have the EFC that will be used to determine your financial aid eligibility.

The Federal Department of Education has a process for verifying applications and making corrections. The Central Processing System (CPS) selects the applications that will go through the verification process. You must deliver or send the documents requested by the Financial Aid Office on time. The verification process is considered completed once the student submits all the information required in the Economic Assistance Office and it certifies that there is no conflicting information and / or data. Once the process is completed, the student will be able to receive the offers and disbursements of aid for which they are eligible.
