UNC Greensboro offers resources to assist students and families to apply for financial aid. Most forms of aid are based on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is every student’s first step in receiving funding to assist with college costs.
APPLYING FOR FINANCIAL AID
Students can complete a FAFSA for the 2024-2025 Academic year in December of 2023. This will be the first year of the new simplified FAFSA. You can learn more about the FAFSA changes. We strongly recommend applying before our priority filing date on March 1st. It’s important to apply early to get the best access to the most possible financial aid.
FINANCIAL AID ELIGIBILITY
Students are eligible to complete a FAFSA and receive federal financial aid as long as they are accepted or enrolled in an eligible degree or certificate program and are U.S. citizens (or eligible non-citizens). Continued eligibility requires that students continue taking the right classes and making satisfactory progress toward earning their degree.
FINANCIAL AID ASSISTANCE
Our Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships is staffed by experts who can help students and families navigate the financial aid process. Students can contact financial aid directly to schedule an appointment or use resources on our student business website, Spartan Central, to learn more about the types of aid and how to make the most of their aid award.
