Need Analysis
The process that determines a student's demonstrated financial need by analyzing the information provided by the student and his or her parents (or spouse, if applicable) on a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Aid). All students must file a FAFSA to apply for need-based federal financial aid programs.

Need-Based Aid
Financial aid that is awarded based on a student's financial circumstance. Need-based aid can be awarded in the form of grants, loans, or work-study. Students who believe their families will need help in meeting their costs of attending NWC are encouraged to apply for need-based aid.

Net Price

The difference between the anticipated cost of this year's education minus your estimated financial aid.
