Welcome! 

Whether you are Active Duty, Reserve, National Guard, a Veteran, or a family member, we thank you for your service to our nation.


The Student Services staff serves as your One Stop Shop for coordination of all your academic activities, progress, and needs. The office is staffed by a full time employee trained as a VA School Certifying Official and will help you connect with any services required on campus.


Enrollment is certified to the appropriate agency upon request of the student. Any student enrolled at NTCC who is eligible for VA Educational Benefits/State of Texas military benefits should notify us when he or she wishes to be certified using the Enrollment Certification form or Continued Enrollment form for Texas Exemptions already in place.
Contact the Student Services Building to determine eligibility and request your benefits.


Using Financial Aid with Veteran Benefits

Financial Aid can be used concurrently with VA and state of Texas benefits. The student services staff is prepared to help you with this process.

In order to receive financial aid, all student must:

  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (www.fafsa.ed.gov) and list NTCC (school code:016396) as your school selection.
  • All students will need a FSA ID (www.fsaid.ed.gov) to complete a FAFSA.  
  • For the upcoming school year (fall term through summer term), the FAFSA opens on October 1st so students should aim to complete the FAFSA as soon as possible after this date.
  • To be considered for the maximum opportunity for various types of grants and other aid, students need to complete the FAFSA and submit all required financial aid documents for the award year by the Priority Deadline, January 15th.
