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.

4. Send in your deposit
To guarantee your spot in the upcoming class, we require a 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 also pay your deposit online through the Pride Page Portal.
5. Register for PAWS orientation
Offered over the summer, PAWS is a one-day orientation program for incoming students and their families. This required program is an excellent opportunity for you to meet faculty, staff, and new friends. You’ll also benefit from early advising and finalizing your course schedule for the upcoming fall semester. You will meet other incoming first-year students and Pride Leaders (Orientation Leaders), and you will gain an overall feeling of comfort and confidence before arriving for the fall semester. Dates for Summer 2018 are Fridays, June 15, June 29, July 13, and July 20. A transfer-student-only PAWS session will be held on Monday, July 23.

Greensboro College is privileged to be partnered with Magnus Health to provide you greater access to your health records and enhanced service in the student health center.

Feel free to look over all the features available in Magnus, especially the required forms.
New students are required to submit a complete immunization record and copy of your insurance card. If you have already mailed/faxed your immunization records, we will transfer them to Magnus.
All students must pay a one-time $25 health-services fee the first time you log into Magnus. This fee covers your access to the health center, including lifetime access to your medical records online through Magnus.

Sexual Misconduct and Prevention Training is an online training program called Not Anymore that all Greensboro College students must complete, even if you are only taking classes online.
