Applying for Financial Aid

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. Priority deadlines for the 2019-2020 FAFSA are listed below.
