SOUTHEASTERN N.C. — Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Day is being held at UNCW and Cape Fear Community College on Jan. 27 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. UNCW’s FAFSA Day will be held on the first floor of Bear Hall and CFCC’s FAFSA Day will be held at the Union Station in room 212 (502 N. Front St.)

FAFSA Day is a statewide informational session aiming to assist current and future students navigating the application process for student aid. North Carolinian households earning $80,000 or less can apply for a minimum of $5,000 with student financial aid. 

FAFSA paperwork must be submitted by June 1. Attendees can receive personalized assistance and are encouraged to register for both events: here for CFCC and here for UNCW.
