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.
Students can complete a FAFSA as early as the October prior to the next fall semester. We strongly recommend applying before our priority filing date on January 15. It’s important to apply early to get the best access to the most possible financial aid.
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.
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.
