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 1920 FAFSA opened October 1, 2018 for the 1920 school year  (Fall 2019/Spring 2020).
The 2021 FAFSA opened October 1, 2019 for the 2021 school year  (Fall 2020/Spring 2021).
