John H. Chafee Foster Care Independence Program and the Education and Training Voucher (ETV) Program


For the 2015-2016 award year, legislative changes were implemented to help identify applicants who are or were in the foster care system.  These applicants may be eligible for assistance through federal programs for foster youth, such as the John H. Chafee Foster Care Independence Program and the Education and Training Voucher (ETV) Program.

New application processing edits generate FAFSA SAR comment codes 165 and 166.  This comment text informs any applicant identified as a foster youth or someone who was in the foster care system that he or she may be eligible for assistance through federal programs for foster youth.  More info can be found here  and where the applicant can find contact information for his or her state ETV coordinator.

Non-FAFSA on the Web filers who respond Yes to Question 53 on the FAFSA, (At any time since you turned age 13, were both your parents deceased, were you in foster care or were you a dependent or ward of the court?) receive comment code 165

This paperwork is submitted each term to the NCSC Cashier's Office

The Amish Descendants Scholarship Fund


The Amish Descendant Scholarship Fund (ADSF) was founded by a small group of former Amish with big dreams — to help other former Amish realize their dreams of earning a college education. Because the Amish only study to the eighth grade, it is challenging for those who leave the community to pursue a higher education. We hope to offer a helping hand by providing financial assistance and support. For more information about ADSF and how to apply, please visit our website: Amish Descendant Scholarship Fund.

Most grants are awarded by the Financial Aid Office. The first step towards receiving a grant is completing the financial aid application process.


The feds say no aid for non-essential courses.

The U.S. Department of Education is tightening rules for financial aid eligibility.  For courses to count for financial aid purposes, they must now be required courses listed on your degree audit.

Students can no longer take courses just to increase the amount of their financial aid.  The College’s computer system “knows” what courses are required for your major, and will base the amount of your financial aid only on those.  You may be enrolled in nine credit hours, but if a three-credit hour course is not required for your degree, the computer will calculate your aid on only six hours.

  If you have any questions as to what classes are required for your major, it is imperative that you consult with your faculty advisor or a success coach in the Student Success Center.
