It’s FAFSA Time
The earlier you file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), the sooner we can get your financial aid award ready for you.
Please help us prepare your package for the upcoming year by completing the following steps:
Go to www.fafsa.gov and complete the FAFSA.
Greensboro College School Code is 002930.
Paying for College
College tuition, fees and other expenses can be paid for in a variety of ways. Many people have saved for college and can use that money to help with expenses. Greensboro College also offers a variety of payment plans to help stretch payments out over the year.
Our students also receive aid in the form of scholarships, grants, work-study, and loans. Funds are awarded based on your qualifications and financial need.
These forms of aid may come in some or all of the following ways:
Scholarship and Need-based aid from Greensboro College. These are scholarships and grants that do not need to be paid back and acknowledge your academic achievements and/or your financial need as determined by the FAFSA.
Federal Aid. This might include grants that you do not need to pay back, loans that you do need to repay, and work-study (a part-time job that you receive money for).
State Aid. This might include scholarships or grants that you do not need to repay.
Private Student Loan. This would be a loan you would obtain through a bank or other lending institution that needs to be paid back.
How Do I Get Started?
Complete the application process for admission. Once you are accepted into the college, we can begin working on a Financial Aid package for you.

If your parents will be submitting their information, they will need a separate PIN. You can apply for a PIN by going to http://www.pin.ed.gov.
