State Financial Aid

State Financial Aid programs are administered by the College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC) and the North Carolina State Education Assistance Authority (NCSEAA). Detailed information concerning each of these funds may be obtained from the College Foundation of North Carolina at www.cfnc.org.

The programs that the Office of Financial Aid and Veterans Affairs directly awards to our students are listed below.

North Carolina Community College Grant (NCCCG)

The North Carolina Community College Grant (NCCCG) was created to provide financial assistance to needy North Carolina resident students attending eligible colleges and universities located within the state of North Carolina.

  • Application:    FAFSA
  • Deadline:   End of spring semester or until funds are depleted
  • Award Amount:   Maximum amount is $2,370 per year for 2017-2018.  The award amount is determined by cost of attendance, Expected Family Contribution (EFC) from student’s FAFSA results, and enrollment status.  The EFC must fall within a range determined by the state of North Carolina each academic year. 
    Award Note:  Effective 2016-2017, the NC General Assembly has authorized awarding additional NCCCG funds to students who meet the new “full-time PLUS” enrollment status (enrolled in 15 or more hours for a semester). If enrolled in less than 15 hours, the student’s NCCCG award will be adjusted.
  • Information:   The NC Community College Grant (NCCCG) Program provides grants, which do not have to be repaid, to students who are a US citizen or permanent resident, a North Carolina resident for tuition purposes, demonstrate financial need, meet eligibility requirements and are enrolled in an eligible program at a North Carolina community college.  Students must be enrolled at least half-time (six credit hours or more).  These funds are awarded only to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor’s or a professional degree.
