Scholarships and Student Aid

The mission of the Office of Scholarships and Student Aid is to keep Carolina affordable for every student who earns admission. Talent and hard work should be the only criteria for success at Carolina. Financial hardship should never be an obstacle to a world-class education.

Carolina has earned national recognition as the best value in public higher education, a measure of top-quality academics and affordable tuition. Our office upholds that competitive advantage and UNC’s public mission by helping all students meet the costs of college.
