Northwest Iowa Community College follows a nationally accepted philosophy in administering financial aid programs. This means you and your parents have a responsibility to meet as much of the costs of attending college as is reasonably possible. You may meet all or some of the costs through your parents’ contribution and through your own resources, including savings and earnings from summer and school year employment. Financial aid is awarded to supplement these financial resources.
