Other Options to Cover Your Balance

Apply For Financial Aid – File the FAFSA

Students should apply for financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The Office of Student Financial Services will use your FAFSA to offer you grants, scholarships, and low-interest federal loans (if eligible). We also recommend seeking out additional scholarships from outside sources. For more information about outside scholarships, click here.

“I loved the GC Honors program and Greensboro College. I felt safe and a sense of genuine belonging at the college. I worked closely with my thesis advisor and professors who helped inspire me to define my path and passion of interest. That path has led me to my doctoral studies in Engineering Mechanics.”
