College Resources & News from CFNC
Spring is when financial aid award letters begin flooding the mailboxes of college-bound high school seniors across North Carolina. Interpreting award letters can be confusing as students compare offers from various schools.
Families can now save for college and retirement at the same time with the NC 529 Plan, North Carolina’s National Education Savings Program. Starting in 2024, excess NC 529 funds can be rolled over tax-free into a Roth IRA for the beneficiary, thanks to a provision in the SECURE 2.0 Act.
During Financial Aid Awareness Month, the North Carolina State Education Assistance Authority (NCSEAA), in partnership with College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC), is hosting the How to Pay for College webinar series as part of Financial Aid Awareness Month.
