Financial Aid at UNCG

UNCG administers an extensive financial aid program which provides assistance to more than half the University’s enrolled undergraduates. Available aid includes scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study. Eligibility for need-based programs is determined through an analysis of family financial information provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid [FAFSA]. Students who file the FAFSA by the priority filing date of March 1 are also considered for non-need-based aid programs. For information on programs, services, and application procedures, contact the Financial Aid Office at the following address:

Support for UNCG’s financial aid program comes from federal and state governments, and from individuals, foundations, and corporations. Awards are granted and administered according to the provisions determined by the contributing agency or donor.

Renewal of a student’s award from federal and state sources is contingent on continued support from government agencies and on the annual determination of the student’s eligibility. Federal and state programs change frequently, so specific types of awards may not be available each year. Award amounts may vary year to year, based on available funds and changes in a student’s financial need status.

You must keep your telephone number, mailing address, and e-mail address* current. Many circumstances arise which require that the Financial Aid Office contact you in an immediate fashion.

You must notify the Financial Aid Office in writing if you:

  1. Choose not to accept all or a portion of your aid package.
  2. Intend to withdraw from or cease enrollment at UNCG.
  3. Receive any form of additional aid.
  4. Plan to enroll for less than a full-time course load (12 s.h. undergraduate, 6 s.h. graduate)

* E-mail is the primary means of communication from the Financial Aid Office to students. Students may update their e-mail addresses via UNCGenie, from the UNCG Web site.
