Undergraduate First Degree

Whether you are entering UNCG straight out of high school or have been working or going to community college, as an first degree undergraduate student there are many types of aid which you can be considered for.

In order to be considered for most types of aid, including Federal Student Loans, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). In order to ensure that your information is sent to UNCG, please be sure to include UNCG’s Federal School Code (002976) in the “school information” section of the FAFSA.  Please be sure to register for a FSA ID at https://fsaid.ed.gov as this is required to sign your application electronically as well as access your FAFSA information in the future.

Based off of the FAFSA we can determine your eligibility for Federal loans and grants, State grants, and Institutional grants and scholarships. The amounts and types of aid offered will be based on your FAFSA. Also as a first degree seeking student there are numerous scholarships through outside organizations and academic departments that you can apply for.

Parent Plus Loan – This loan is available to parents of dependent students who have borrowed their annual or aggregate limit under the Federal Student Aid program.  This loan cannot be awarded in excess of the cost of attendance. Parents of all income levels are eligible but it is a credit-based loan. Parents must apply and be approved for the loan.

Maximum Time Frame – First Degree  An undergraduate student seeking a first degree is eligible to receive financial aid for a maximum of 150% of the hours required for the degree (maximum of 180 attempted hours).
