North’s Completion Grant provides one-time financial support to students close to completing a certificate or degree who are experiencing an enrollment-threatening financial situation.

Review Process

  1. 1. Students will meet with a committee member who will provide the student with a link and help with any application questions.
  3. 2. Applications received 2 weeks prior to the start of the quarter will be reviewed during the week before the start of the quarter. Applications received after that will be discussed on a weekly basis. Students will be notified immediately after the application has been reviewed.

Important Information

We encourage students to include in their application the full dollar amount they are requesting for tuition, fees, textbooks and other support for their final quarter. Please note, however, that Completion Grant funding is limited, that it may not fully meet student’s expressed need, and that it is not guaranteed. We strongly encourage students to explore all other means of covering the cost of their final quarter while applying for Completion Grant support.
