Are scholarships and financial aid available?

We direct most of our funding to need-based aid, because we want to make it possible for any student who earns admission to attend and graduate from Carolina. Both first-year and transfer applicants are considered for our full range of need-based aid as long as they submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and CSS PROFILE by the March 1 priority deadline. For the limited number of scholarships that do not have any requirements regarding financial need, all students are considered just by submitting their application for admission. You do not need to take any additional action to be considered for these scholarships. Please visit the Office of Scholarships and Student Aid to learn more about applying for financial aid.
