NC Community College Grant

Grants are available to North Carolina residents who have lived in the state for at least one year and demonstrate financial need. NC Community College Grant awards are projected based on 15 credit hours. 

You may qualify for an NC Community College Grant if you:

1) Are a resident of North Carolina. 
2) Are enrolled for at least six credit hours at a North Carolina community college.
3) Meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements of the institution. 
4) Have submitted a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Students not eligible for the Federal Pell Grant may be considered for this grant based on their estimated family contribution (EFC) as determined on the Student Aid Report (SAR) generated by submitting a FAFSA.  The value of the grant depends on the financial need you show through your FAFSA.

Students who have earned bachelor’s degrees are ineligible.
