Putting Carolina
within reach

We work hard to keep Carolina affordable for every student who earns admission.

The mission of the Office of Scholarships and Student Aid is to make sure that qualified students have the opportunity to study at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill regardless of their ability to pay.

The Office will strive to maximize available funds, exercise good stewardship of those resources, and perform related research and program evaluation. The goals are to:

  • assist in the recruitment and retention of students;
  • continually improve service to students; and
  • support long-range enrollment and campus planning goals.
