Coronavirus icon       Coronavirus    Announcements
When visiting Bear Central, wear a mask and follow all signs and posted placards to keep the UNC community healthy.

All financial aid funds are applied to the student bill beginning the first week of school each semester provided the student and/or parent has completed all tasks for the aid to pay. Please review your Ursa account to make sure you have accepted your aid and completed any loan lender tasks required. 

All financial aid refunds will be provided by a mailed check or a direct deposit. Students will not be able to pick up refund checks at Bear Central in efforts to comply with UNC’s social distancing, health and safety measures.

Professional/Academic Experience

I’ve been assisting families for more than 40 years get through this ever so important government “maze” of financial aid. As a first generation college student, I’ve been helping students obtain financial aid ever since I started my graduate school internship at Central Michigan University. CMU is where I obtained my MA Degree. Prior to that, I received my BA from Michigan State University. For 18 years, I was Assistant Dean\Director of Student Financial Services at Western State College in Gunnison. Even though I loved my time in the mountains, I’m thrilled to be a part of the UNC community where there is such a positive energy and optimism. Go Bears!
