Undergraduate Second Degree

Thinking about going back to school for a second degree?  Wondering if you can receive financial aid?  Here is some helpful information about the process:

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.

Most second degree students admitted into a degree or eligible certificate program are eligible for Federal Student Loans only.

Maximum Time Frame – Second Degree – A student pursuing a second degree is eligible to receive financial aid for a maximum of 150% of the hours required for the second degree (maximum of 228 attempted hours including the first degree).
