Financial Aid Check Disbursement

Be sure to update your local mailing address on UNCGenie in order to receive your refund check by mail.
Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy for Financial Aid Purposes
In order to be eligible to receive financial aid, all students must comply with the requirements of the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy. A copy of this policy is available at the Financial Aid Office, on the FAO Web site, and is included with all financial aid award letters. The policy outlines GPA requirements, minimum credit hour attainment, time limit restrictions, and information about withdrawal from school and reinstatement of aid. Please note that students will be held to the number of credit hours that they are registered for as of the last day of the schedule adjustment period. Students who do not fulfill the policy requirements may appeal to the Financial Aid Office. Refer to the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy, especially if you have failed, dropped, taken incompletes, or failed to earn credit to the Satisfactory A hours in any class.
Advising for new undergraduates is included in the SOAR orientation programs. Students are assigned academic advisors and receive other registration materials at that time. Foreign language and math (see http://www.uncg.edu/mat/undergraduate/mathplacetest.html) placement tests are also given during the SOAR orientation programs.
