Financing a UNCW Education
Financing a UNCW education may seem like a challenging responsibility, so we do our best to make UNCW accessible to all who are granted admission. UNCW meets this promise through need-blind admissions and through financial aid.
Admissions decisions at UNCW are made without considering your family's financial need. For those who apply for need-based aid, determined by the FAFSA, we award the amount of federal, state, and institutional aid you qualify to receive. Our merit awards are limited, but are awarded to students based on the content of material submitted for the admission decision. For merit awards, students who meet the Early Action Decision deadline will be notified by January; Regular Decision students will be notified in early spring.
Any college expenses not covered by financial aid are the responsibility of the student and/or family. When making preparations to cover these expenses, here are options you can consider:
1. Remitting full payment directly to Student Accounts.
2. Remitting payments via the TealPay monthly payment plan.
3. Borrowing with the most affordable loan you have available to you.
If you wish to increase (or decrease) a loan that you already have, please complete the Federal Loan Adjustment Request form.
