We will begin processing 2024-2025 FAFSA beginning mid-May.  Financial Aid Offer emails will be sent in mid-May.  Financial Aid Offer letters, required documents, and Financial Aid status will be available in MyNVC, Financial Aid.

If you need to make corrections to your 2024-2025 FAFSA (e.g. add missing signature, provide consent, change answer to Direct Unsubsidized Loan Only, etc.), students and contributors are now able to make corrections to their 2024-2025 FAFSA at  Here are the steps from the Department of Education to make corrections.  


The Financial Aid Office offers a variety of aid programs, including grants, loans, scholarships, and work study opportunities for students who are having a difficult time meeting the cost of attending Napa Valley College. Any student who is having financial difficulties is urged to apply for financial assistance by submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), or the California Dream Act Application for AB540 eligible Dreamers.  Our friendly staff are here to assist you with the application process and to help you understand the types of assistance that may be available to you.  Don't disqualify yourself!  If you think you need financial aid, apply for it. 

If you and/or your family have special circumstances  such as significant loss of income or expenses that may affect your financial aid eligibility; or you are a dependent student who has unusual circumstances as to why you cannot provide parental information on the FAFSA, please contact the Financial Aid Office to inquire about the process to file a special circumstances  for an Income Adjustment or unusual circumstances for Dependency Override.
