For Tennessee Reconnect students:
Each semester requires a new application. Assistance is provided on a first-come, first-served, semester-to-semester basis. Receiving assistance in one semester does not guarantee that you will receive assistance in a future semester.
For Nashville GRAD students:
Each semester requires a new application. Nashville GRAD students are guaranteed a $250 textbook stipend each semester; additional assistance may be provided if funding is available.
Students participating in the program who successfully complete at least 75% of each semester’s coursework and otherwise comply with the terms of the program will be eligible to request textbook assistance during the following semester.
Please note that due to funding restrictions, there are limits to the support we can provide each semester.
To apply for textbook assistance:
- Go to your MyNSCC Student Account to view which textbooks you will need assistance with during the semester. Click “Purchase Textbooks” — this will take you to the College’s online bookstore. Create your cart based on what you need in order to get the total cost for your textbooks. Print this page or write down the list of needed books and pricing; you will need this information later when completing your application.
- Go to your MyNSCC Financial Aid page to determine how much aid you are receiving for the semester. Make sure that you write down each type of aid you are receiving, the amount of aid, and your “Net Term Balance.” This is the information that you will need in the financial section of the application. (IMPORTANT: The information from your “Account Detail for Term” page must exactly match the application for assistance to be considered.)
