Financial Assistance for Graduate Students

Graduate students are eligible for Assistantships, Stipends, Scholarships, Work Study, Loans and some Grants.

Financial aid is awarded to assist students in paying for the cost of an education. Students may apply for need-based and some non-need-based financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students should complete this form immediately after January 1. There is no processing fee and all graduate students are encouraged to complete the application.  Students can submit the FAFSA on the Web ( or mail the form to the Federal Processing Center.  North Carolina A&T State University school code is 002905. The University’s priority deadline for receipt of the FAFSA is March 15th; however, students who miss the deadline are still encouraged to complete and mail the FAFSA as soon as possible.

A financial aid award will not be offered until a student is admitted to the University.  Therefore, it is important that the admission procedure be completed as soon as possible. A student enrolled as a “Post-baccalaureate Studies (PBS)” student is not eligible to receive Federal and State financial aid unless enrolled in a Teacher Certification Program. All students must re-apply for financial assistance each academic year and separately for summer school.
