UNCW Financial Aid Office Extends FAFSA Support Efforts

Thursday, October 04, 2018

In the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, the UNCW Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid is extending its efforts to assist students and families with the preparation of their Free Application for Financial Student Aid for the 2019-20 financial aid filing season, which opened Oct. 1.

Now through Oct. 12, the office is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday and until 4 p.m. on Fridays to assist with FAFSA preparation. This assistance is available to all students, even if they plan to attend a different university. Those interested can sign up ahead of time for a day and time to receive assistance.  

New applicants who plan to submit the FAFSA online must create a Federal Student Aid ID at StudentAid.gov/fsaid. Each school has its own deadlines and schedule for awarding financial aid. Students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA as early as possible.

The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid is located in the Warwick Center. Questions may be directed to finaid@uncw.edu.
