For UNC Charlotte, only one application is required to apply for financial aid; it is commonly referred to as the “FAFSA”.
To apply for financial aid:
- Submit the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The application opens Oct 1 each year.
- Be sure to enter our school code (002975) so that we receive your FAFSA information.
- All students must reapply for aid every year.
- You can apply for financial aid before you are admitted, but we cannot tell you what you are eligible for until you are admitted.

You will receive your financial aid award based on when you submit your FAFSA*. The earlier you submit your FAFSA, the earlier you will receive an award.
