Fine Print

Your financial aid award is subject to revision upon final verification of credits transferred into the program along with the number of hours enrolled and successfully completed each semester/term.  Your award may be reduced based on final funding by the award agencies (NC General Assembly, US Department of Education, etc.).  Students are required to make consistent progress toward the completion of their degree to remain eligible for certain financial aid programs.  Students may also be required to submit additional documentation to verify the information submitted on the FAFSA.
