How to Apply for Financial Aid
Applying for college can't get any easier than this. Just fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online.
The FAFSA allows the U.S. Department of Education to determine how much your family can be expected to contribute to your educational expenses. When you apply for financial aid, the amount you're awarded is based on the difference between the cost of attending William Peace University and this expected contribution.
Submit your FAFSA by March 15 for priority consideration, enter William Peace University's school code (002953) and you're done. You can expect a Student Aid Report (SAR) outlining your expected family contribution within a few weeks.
Remember to also submit a Scholarship Application to be considered for one of the many scholarships William Peace University offers.
CFNC FAFSA Day: The College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC), the North Carolina Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators and the State Employees' Credit Union hosts a FAFSA Day each February. College/University financial aid officers and other volunteers assist students and families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Click here to learn more and register.
