New College guarantees scholarship funding to nearly 100% of admitted students, providing an exceptional education at an affordable price.

Admitted students who are U.S. citizens, U.S. permanent resident aliens, or eligible non-citizens can receive scholarship funding. There are additional scholarships available by application. If a student qualifies for more than one scholarship, we will assign the best option (unless the scholarship indicates it may “stack”). All scholarships are subject to renewal requirements and to availability of funding. Institutional funding is not available to students who already hold a bachelor’s or advanced degree.

Scholarships and Residency

Scholarship funding amounts are tied to residency guidelines for tuition purposes. For example, a student who is a Florida resident for tuition purposes will not be eligible for an out-of-state scholarship. If a student qualifies for more than one scholarship, the student will receive the scholarship award with the larger dollar amount. Further questions may be directed to the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid at admissions@ncf.edu.
