Financial Aid

The Office of Financial Aid is dedicated to helping students and parents obtain the financial aid necessary to pay for a college education at UNCP. The Financial Aid Office is located on the second floor of Lumbee Hall. This office coordinates a variety of State, Federal, private, and institutionally funded aid programs, each with different regulations and requirements. While most of these programs require students to demonstrate financial need, there are loan funds available to help students and parents which are not need based. All students requesting consideration for any type of financial aid, including loans, must apply each year. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) should be completed each year, listing the University of North Carolina at Pembroke as the school of choice. The federal school code is 002954. The web address for the FAFSA is www.fafsa.ed.gov. The application should be submitted prior to our priority deadline of March 15 to allow time for processing so awards can be made before Fall Registration.

To be eligible for financial assistance a student must have a high school diploma or GED; be enrolled as a regular student in an eligible program; be a U.S. Citizen or eligible non-citizen; have a Social Security number; make satisfactory academic progress; register with the Selective Service, if required; and not be in default on any federal loan or owe a refund on a federal grant. Financial aid is awarded on the basis of academic achievement and demonstrated financial need. The first responsibility of financing a student’s education rests with the student and the student’s family. A student’s parents are expected to contribute towards his or her expenses insofar as they are able from income and assets. A student is expected to provide funds for his or her own education through savings, summer work, and other resources. Each student is individually considered on the basis of the family financial situation.

The information provided on the UNC Pembroke Office of Financial Aid web site explains the programs offered to assist with students’ college expenses, details the eligibility requirements for these programs, and describes how to apply for them.
