When it comes to paying bills and applying for financial aid, deadlines are very important. Here are general guidelines to keep in mind.

Financial Aid Deadlines

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is available starting October 1 each year. In order to receive the best aid consideration, we urge students to complete their FAFSA each year during the Priority filing window: October 1 – January 15

If you miss this window, please still plan to file your FAFSA as soon as possible. We award financial aid to eligible students year-round so it’s never too late!

Students must file a FAFSA every year to continue their aid eligibility. Applying early every year gives students the best chance at the maximum aid for which they qualify.


UNC Greensboro issues bills for tuition, fees, housing, meal plans, and parking each semester via the student’s UNCGenie account. Students and their designated authorized users are notified by email when a bill is available. Billing due dates can be viewed on the billing statement and are typically in the first week of the semester or earlier.

Scholarship Deadlines

New students should apply early and submit a FAFSA by the priority filing date, January 15, for automatic scholarship consideration.

Current students can apply via the Spartan Scholarship System (S3) annually in January.
