IMPORTANT DATES AND DEADLINES

STUDENT'S INTENT TO ENROLL CONFIRMED? (National Day of Intent)

Preferred Deadline: May 1, 2017

Students accepted to attend North Carolina A&T State University have received or will receive this message:

Confirming Intent to Enroll through Portal

Admitted students are required to click the “confirm your enrollment plans” link and submit their intent to enroll. The deadline to submit is May 1 to secure the student’s spot in the Fall 2017 class. If you have any questions, contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. The contact information is located on the back of this newsletter. 

MAKE THE PORTAL A PRIORITY! 

The Aggie Admissions Portal is where students apply to attend N.C. A&T. Once a student creates an Aggie Admissions Portal account, they will find out what is needed to complete an application, schedule campus visits and register for events hosted by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. You must check it regularly to see if any documents are missing in order to process your application for admission.

STUDENT AWARD & VERIFICATION

Your award package may include grants and scholarships, which are free and do not require repayment nor do they require acceptance via Aggie Access. The other portion of the award package may include a loan and/or work-study. Students must accept, reduce or cancel awarded loans via their Aggie Access Portal. Loans must also be repaid. Students awarded work-study will be assigned a paying job on or off campus and can work 10 to 15 hours a week. Get the specifics by visiting the Office of Student Financial Aid.

If selected for financial aid verification, you cannot be awarded until verification is complete. Verification is the process of verifying the information reported on the FAFSA in comparison to your student and your tax returns. For more information, contact Student Financial Aid at 800-443-0835 or via email at finaid@ncat.edu.
