Applying for Financial Aid
Students wishing to apply for financial aid should file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This form determines the eligibility of students for many types of need-based aid, such as Federal Pell Grants, Stafford Loans and Work-Study. Students must be fully admitted into UNC Pembroke before they can receive a financial aid award. Most of the information on the FAFSA comes from information that the student and the parents report on their Federal Income Tax Forms. The priority financial aid filing date is March 1 of each year. Students applying for financial aid after March 1 may have less aid available.
We would also like to encourage you to take a look at our Financial Aid Reference Sheet. Here, you will find detailed information regarding the types of federal and state aid, as well as frequently asked questions and specific information regarding your financial aid award.
The UNCP Federal School Code is 002954.
