The economic realities of the 21st century include the fact that, no matter which college or university you attend, it is going to be expensive. Nossi College of Art prides itself on being able to keep tuition and college expenses down to a minimum level. One of the financial policies Nossi College of Art offers is their fixed-tuition guarantee. This means that once a student is enrolled in a program at Nossi, that student’s tuition will not increase from the beginning of their program through graduation.
Still, most students need some financial aid assistance with their college career. Nossi is approved to offer several financial programs for students. These programs include Federal Pell Grants, Direct Loan Programs, Social Security and United States Department of Veterans Affairs programs, Tennessee Student Assistance Awards and Federal Direct (Parents) PLUS loans. The college maintains a financial aid office to assist students in applying for financial aid. Complete details about qualifications may be obtained through that office. In addition, Nossi College of Art offers several art and photography scholarships.
To apply for federal and state aid, you must complete the FAFSA application. You may apply online here. If you have any questions or do not have Internet access, you may call our financial aid department at 888-986-2787(ARTS).
Through the Direct Loan Program, students and parents will borrow their Federal Stafford and PLUS loans directly from the federal government and will no longer be borrowing their loan funds through private lenders.
You will need to sign a new Master Promissory Note (MPN) and schedule a new entrance interview for any Stafford or PLUS loan you expect to borrow for the coming award year. This can be done at www.studentloans.gov.
