Other Information

Consideration for funding is automatic once the FAFSA is filed. The FAFSA opens on October 1. 

Eligibility is determined based on the same criteria as the Federal Pell Grant with one exception; students not eligible for the Federal Pell Grant with an expected family contribution of $8,500 or less will be eligible for a North Carolina Community College Grant. Students who have earned baccalaureate (four-year) college degrees are ineligible.
