Program Details

Our Tuition Guarantee program is coordinated with federal and state aid and scholarship funds to assure that your tuition will be paid for four consecutive regular academic semesters. Students residing in Prentiss County will apply for our Tuition Assistance program, this program covers up to $250 in remaining tuition expenses. Your participation under this program is contingent upon your compliance with a few requirements and the availability of program funds.

To take advantage of the Tuition Guarantee program, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Graduate from high school by the end of May.  
  • Take the American College Test (ACT) before the end of May.
  • Submit this signed agreement to the Financial Aid Office by the end of May.

  • Enroll in NEMCC for the fall semester following your high school graduation as a full-time student (at least 15 academic hours).
  • Students are strongly encouraged to take as much credit as practical at their nearest Northeast location.
