In light of Campus closure and as a precautionary measure regarding COVID-19, employees in the Office of Financial Aid are working remotely in an effort to best support our campus community. We ask for your patience as some services may be limited and response time may increase.  Staff will work diligently to respond as quickly as possible to voicemails, emails, etc. We appreciate your understanding as we prioritize health and safety. Updates will be published to UNC's COVID-19 Information page or view financial aid information here.

The FAFSA for the 2020-21 year opens October 1.  Apply early and every year to be eligible for maximum financial aid. All you need is your FSA ID and your 2018 tax information. You can use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to import your and your parent(s) 2018 taxes into the FAFSA.  Be sure to file the FAFSA by the priority deadline of March 1 to ensure your access to the best financial aid package available.
