Next Steps

Preparing for college can be confusing, but we’ve got you covered. Follow these steps and you’ll be on your way to being a Greensboro College student. Remember, as soon as you know you’re ready to enroll at Greensboro College, you should submit your $200 deposit to save your spot.

Checklist for Accepted Full-Time Undergraduate Students

As an accepted student, you must take several important steps to enroll at Greensboro College. Follow this checklist to ensure you’re ready for move-in day! Remember, your Pride Page will be your “home base” as you submit your deposit and fill out the required forms to officially enroll, so be sure to hang on to the username and password you create.

1. Set up your Pride Page

The Pride Page is designed to help you through the enrollment process.  It gives you access to your Financial Aid, Student Accounts, and forms for Enrollment, parking and so much more.  Follow the Pride Page directions and you’ll be on your way to becoming a Greensboro College student.  Access your Pride Page at http://empowerweb.greensboro.edu/fusebox.cfm

2. File your FAFSA and explore financial aid

Have you filed your FAFSA? If not, please go to FAFSA.ed.gov. FAFSA stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid and is your opportunity to receive help with college expenses. Beginning October 1, you may submit your FAFSA. Remember to include Greensboro College as a FAFSA recipient. Our school code is 002930. For more information about financial aid, visit www.greensboro.edu/financial-aid or email the financial aid office at financialaid@greensboro.edu or 336.272.7102, ext. 5217.

3. Register for Accepted Student Day

All accepted students are encouraged to attend Accepted Student Day on Saturday, March 21, 2020. This is your chance to connect with future classmates; meet professors and learn about classes in your intended major; hear from financial aid, housing, and student services; and explore campus on a whole new level! Please register here, but only if you have already been accepted to the college.

4. Send in your deposit

The only way to guarantee your spot in the upcoming class is to send in your deposit of $200. The deposit is due on May 1, but as soon as you know you want to attend Greensboro College please let us know by submitting your deposit. You may pay your deposit online through the Pride Page.

5. Register for PAWS orientation

Offered three times during the summer, PAWS is an orientation program for incoming students and their families. This is an excellent opportunity for you to meet faculty, staff and new friends. You’ll also benefit from advising and finalizing your course schedule for the upcoming fall semester. You will meet other incoming first-year students and Pride Leaders (current students who will show you the ropes), and you will gain an overall feeling of comfort and confidence upon arriving for the fall semester. Dates this summer are: Friday, June 19, or Friday, July 10, or Friday, July 24.
Transfer Students – Monday, July 27.

6. Complete Enrollment Forms

You will also need to sign up for GC Alert and complete the Sexual Misconduct Prevention Training on your Pride Page.
