Apply for Financial Aid

FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, is your application for all Federal, State, and need-based financial aid including:

  • Federal Pell Grant
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant
  • North Carolina Need Based Scholarship
  • Federal Work Study
  • Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans

You must add Greensboro College’s school code: 002930

The FAFSA opened for the 2020-21 Academic Year on Oct. 1, 2019, and requires 2018 tax return information. Click to Complete your FAFSA.

New Students: Once you have been accepted to Greensboro College and we receive your completed FAFSA, the Financial Aid Office will complete your financial-aid package. This package will include any grants, scholarships, loans, or work study you are eligible for. The package will be mailed to your home address but will also be available on your Pride Page.

Returning Students: We encourage returning students to complete the FAFSA for the 2020-21 academic year by March 15, 2020. Students who are in good academic standing, have a 2020-21 FAFSA, and have completed verification (if required) will start receiving emails in March 2020 alerting them that their early financial-aid estimate is available on their Pride Page. Final award packages for the 2020-21 year will be made available after spring 2020 grades are released in May. All financial-aid information for returning students will be electronic.

Completing the Federal Verification Process: Greensboro College has a partnership with Inceptia to expedite the federal verification process. Verification Gateway (VG) from Inceptia is an online portal to guide students and parents through verification. New students will receive an estimated financial-aid package before complete verification; returning students must complete verification before receiving their financial-aid packages.

If your FAFSA application is selected for verification by the U.S Department of Education, you will receive an email from Greensboro College with a link to the Verification Gateway. We encourage you to begin the verification process within 7 days of receiving this notification to ensure you receive your financial aid in time for payments. Failure to complete the verification process could result in the delay or denial of your financial aid.
