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.

The UNCP Federal School Code is 002954.

The 2223 FAFSA opened October 1, 2021 for the 2022-2023 school year  (Fall 2022/Spring 2023).

The 2324 FAFSA opened October 1, 2022 for the 2023-2024 school year  (Fall 2023/Spring 2024).
