NSCC is committed to making college affordable for even more students to achieve the life-long dream of a college degree with less student debt. The North Shore Promise Award reduces the direct cost to attend NSCC to zero for new full-time students who are eligible for financial aid but lack enough grant funds to cover tuition and fees. The award covers the cost of tuition and fees for the first 100 financially qualifying students who apply. The above information is taken from the Program’s website.
