Financial Aid

Qualifying students may apply for financial aid from the Federal Pell Grant program. Students with intellectual disabilities are eligible for federal financial aid thanks to the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008. To apply for aid, students must complete a Free Application for Federal Aid (FAFSA). For more information about aid for students with intellectual disabilities, visit the Federal Student Aid Website.

Visit our Frequently Asked Questions page for additional information or contact The UNCG Financial Aid Office directly at 336-334-5702. You can talk with any counselor at the Financial Aid Office but you may find that Cathryn Garrett has particularly relevant knowledge for students with disabilities who are applying for financial aid. She can be reached at cagarre2@uncg.edu.

The Bill Estimator is currently based on estimated tuition and fees for the 2017-2018 academic year. This will help you estimate the costs of attending UNCG for a single semester before you receive a bill from the university.

* Monarch College Support Services are not eligible for funding through Federal Student Aid programs.
