Assistance for Evening Degree Program and Graduate Students

Evening Degree Program (EDP) Financial Assistance Information

EDP students should submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to be considered for financial assistance.  The FAFSA should be filed online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov as soon as the student knows he or she is pursuing admission at High Point University. High Point University’s Title IV School Code is 002933. The FAFSA form should be submitted as soon as possible after January 1 each year, and students who submit the FAFSA by March 1 will be considered priority applicants.

FAFSA worksheets and the NCLTG application may be picked up at the Evening Degree Program Office or the Office of Student Financial Planning.  Links to the FAFSA website and the NCLTG application can be found on the HPU website under the Scholarships & Financial Planningpage. If further assistance is needed concerning the financial aid process, contact the Office of Student Financial Planning at (336) 841-9124.

Students must be enrolled at half-time status for the semester to receive Federal funds. Federal funds include the Federal Pell Grant and the Federal Stafford Loan. Students who are enrolled full time (12 credit hours or more per semester) and are legal North Carolina residents for tuition purposes are eligible for the North Carolina Legislative Tuition Grant (currently $1950 for the 2007-08 academic year). Students who are enrolled less than full time but at least nine credit hours per semester may be eligible to receive a prorated NCLTG. Please check the Scholarships & Financial Planning page on the HPU website (www.highpoint.edu )for current information and loan limits. Students receiving the NCLTG must complete an NCLTG application form each academic year and sign an award letter accepting the grant.

Students working on their initial teacher certifications are also eligible for the NCLTG at the same levels as bachelor’s degree students. Other Federal and state aid programs for students planning on becoming teachers are available; for current information, please check theScholarships & Financial Planning page on the HPU website (www.highpoint.edu ).
