You may apply for financial aid through the UNC Office of Financial Aid. University financial aid includes scholarships, student loans, work-study, and other programs. In order to be eligible for these university-wide programs, it is necessary for you to submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the mid-February deadline posted on this site. Financial statements submitted after the deadline will be processed but will receive a lower priority and funding will be subject to funds available.
Because the program typically requires fewer than nine credit hours per semester, you should talk with a financial aid officer about the types of aid for which you would be eligible.
