NC Legislative Tuition Grant

North Carolina residents who attend private colleges as full-time students are eligible for the NC Legislative

Tuition Grant (NC LTG). The NC State Contractual Scholarship, which is variable according to need

and availability, is also available to NC residents with financial need. NC LTG and NC State Contractual

grant amounts may vary from semester to semester depending on NC General Assembly funding.

Grants

Mount Olive College also participates in federal grant programs. US citizens and permanent

residents who apply for and have financial need may be eligible for the Pell Grant.

Applying for Financial Aid

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is used to determine what

a family can contribute toward educational expenses per academic year.

To apply for need-based financial aid, you will need to submit a completed FAFSA. It is available at

public libraries, local high school guidance offices, financial aid offices, or online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.

You may complete the FAFSA any time after January 1. You may also sign the FAFSA online with your

PIN number. You may obtain a PIN number at any time by visiting www.pin.ed.gov. In order for your

FAFSA information to be sent to Mount Olive College, please include the school code of 002949.

The FAFSA asks for financial information about you and your family, like income and asset information,

as well as your academic background. Within three to four weeks of the date you file your FAFSA, you

and the financial aid office will each receive a Student Aid Report (SAR), based on the information

you reported in your application. Be sure to check your SAR for errors and let us know if there are any

corrections. We will develop a financial aid package for you based on the information in your SAR.

Requirements for Receiving Financial Aid

To be eligible for financial aid, you must meet the following general requirements:

US citizen or permanent resident

Officially accepted as a degree-seeking student to Mount Olive College

Maintain satisfactory academic progress in a major course of study

Not be in default on an educational loan or owe a refund on a grant received at another college

Financial Assistance for International Students

International students wishing to study at Mount Olive College will be considered for academic

scholarships based on merit and academic ability. Athletic scholarships may also be available to qualified

athletes. Special talent scholarships in music and art may also be available, as well as other departmental

scholarships depending on anticipated major. However, an audition or review of your portfolio is required.

International students are not eligible to be considered for any federal or state financial aid programs.

International students may choose, as an alternative to other funding, to receive funding from

Mount Olive College to cover half of their tuition and fees. If this option is chosen, no other

academic, athletic, or need-based money will be granted.
