Spring 2022 Newsletter 
Hello Northeast families! 

We are excited for a great semester of supporting your Northeast student. The Northeast Families Newsletter provides information for you to stay connected with the events and important information related to your student’s Northeast experience. If you should have any questions, or need assistance, please contact Lori Trowbridge at loriv@northeast.edu.  

Our Financial Aid Advisors are Here to Help

Our Financial Aid staff works with students, parents, and counselors to help meet the cost of a college education. At Northeast, we believe that obtaining a college education is one of the most rewarding investments you will ever make.

The aid offered at Northeast is intended to supplement rather than replace the family's contribution. Financial assistance can be in the form of scholarships or need-based aid, and each has a separate application process.

Communication about financial aid will be sent to your student through their email account and the student will be directed to view their financial aid information in their My Northeast app. The official method of all financial aid communication is through the student’s My Northeast account.

Please contact the Financial Aid Office at 402-844-7285 if you have any questions about your student’s financial aid.

FAFSA completion assistance is available any time from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm in the Financial Aid office in the College Welcome Center on the Norfolk campus.  For those families unable to travel to the Norfolk campus a virtual appointment can be set up by calling the Financial Aid Office at 402-844-7285.

Scholarship application and eligibility

Northeast offers students scholarships, merit tuition waivers, and performance grants established by the College and by the Northeast Foundation. Qualifications, deadlines, and amounts vary.

A current Application for Admission must be on file with the Admissions Office before a student is considered for any scholarship award. In addition, for any scholarship requiring a student to show financial need, the Financial Aid Office must receive and verify the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine eligibility. Scholarships that require financial need will be awarded to students pending verification of need by the FAFSA. Recipients that do not demonstrate need or fail to submit a FAFSA will have the scholarship removed from their financial aid award and the scholarship will be awarded to the alternate.

For most of the scholarships offered at Northeast just one online scholarship application is required. The Online Scholarship Application for the 2022-2023 academic year was available starting October 1, 2021, and the first priority deadline date is March 1, 2022.

, jobs and experience level. Students can practice interviewing skills with Northeast’s new Big Interview platform. Students need to register using organization code: 0606.

  

Northeast Joins JED Campus to Support Student Mental Health  
Northeast Community College announced that it has joined JED Campus in support of student well-being and mental health. The program is a nationwide initiative of The Jed Foundation (JED) designed to help schools evaluate and strengthen their mental health, substance misuse, and suicide prevention programs and systems to ensure that schools have the strongest possible mental health safety nets.
 
By joining JED Campus, Northeast Community College demonstrates a commitment to the emotional well-being of its students. JED Campuses embark on a multi-year strategic collaboration that not only assesses and enhances the work that is already being done but also helps create positive, lasting, systemic change in the campus community. The program provides schools with a framework for supporting student mental health, as well as assessment tools, feedback reports, a strategic plan, and ongoing support from the JED Higher Education team.

“The college years are the age when many mental health issues first manifest, and it can be a time of significant stress and pressure,” said John MacPhee, Chief Executive Officer of JED. “JED Campus helps schools by working with them to survey everything their college or university is doing to support their students’ emotional health and find practical ways to augment these efforts in a comprehensive way. We believe that the implementation of a campus-wide approach to mental health will lead to safer, healthier communities, and likely greater student retention.”

Northeast’s membership in JED Campus begins with establishing an interdisciplinary, campus-wide team to assess, support and implement program, policy, and system improvements and completing a confidential, self-assessment survey on its mental health promotion, substance use, and suicide prevention efforts. Upon completion of the assessment, JED subject matter experts provide schools with a comprehensive feedback report identifying successes and opportunities for enhancements. Over the course of four years, Northeast will collaborate with JED to help implement enhancements. All self-assessment responses and feedback reports are confidential.

Words of Wisdom 

A parent’s challenge in setting realistic expectations is not to look for the person their student was before he or she left for college but look at the person he or she is becoming.  - Kelci Lynn Lucier
