Noorda-COM’s Status of Eligibility For Participation In Title IV Student Aid Programs
Currently Noorda-COM is ineligible to participate in federally sponsored student loan programs. Federal regulations require new schools to have full accreditation prior to being eligible to apply to participate in Title IV federal funding programs (e.g., Federal Unsubsidized Stafford and Federal Graduate PLUS Loans). Upon the graduation of our inaugural class in 2025 we will be eligible to submit our application, known as the Program Participation Agreement (PPA) to participate in Title IV financial aid programs. Approval of the application by the U.S. Department of Education may take 6 – 12 months or longer. We cautiously anticipate that we will begin offering a federal student loan option mid-way through our 2025-26 academic year. Once approval has been granted, Noorda-COM will begin to offer Federal Student Aid to students who are currently enrolled, and students enrolled thereafter. As a result of not participating in federal student loan programs Noorda-COM will not issue 1098-T’s.
The Office of Financial Aid will provide periodic updates as soon as we are able to begin preparing for our PPA submission.
Students attending Noorda-COM that need financial aid to fund their tuition, fees, and to assist with living expenses, will need apply for private student loans. Various lending options are available to students; more information is available in the Types of Assistance section.
