UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

Financial Aid Awareness Week

Over half of the students enrolled at UNCG are taking advantage of the financial aid opportunities available to help pay for the cost of a college education. However, many students think that they will never qualify for financial assistance, so they do not even bother applying.

There are many opportunities for financial aid available.

The UNCG Financial Aid Office will have information tables set up in the Elliott University Center and the Moran Commons this week where Financial Aid Office staff members will be available to answer students’ financial aid questions. Information tables will be in the EUC on Feb. 20 from 10 a.m.-noon. and Feb. 21 from 11 a .m.-1 p.m.

In addition to the information available during Financial Aid Awareness Week, students may also receive assistance in filing their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on FAFSA Day, held on Saturday, Feb. 23, 2013 throughout the state. UNCG will not be a FAFSA Day site but there will be other places in the Greensboro area. Visit College Foundation of North Carolina at www.cfnc.org for information on locations of the event, required documentation and registration for FAFSA day.

Students may begin filing their FAFSA for the 2013-14 school year now. Students must file a FAFSA each school year they are planning to receive financial aid, even if their aid consists only of student loans.

The FAFSA priority deadline for UNCG is March 1, 2013.
