Applying for financial aid shouldn’t cost you a dime. Apply for assistance at, not

Don’t Get Scammed!

Recently, a number of NC State students and families have received letters in the mail soliciting money to apply for scholarships and financial aid. One company in particular, College Financial Advisory, uses a logo that appears similar to the US Department of Education and appears to be an official document. They encourage students to pay $59 to process a “Student Aid Profile Form” for the upcoming year.

NC State’s Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid would like to remind you that you should never pay to apply for scholarships, grants or any type of financial assistance. Please contact us immediately if you have any questions about mailings or emails that ask for you to pay money in order to receive a scholarship.  Our staff is always available to help direct you to free scholarship search resources and to assist you in the process of applying for federal, state, and institutional aid.  Our scholarships pages are a great way to search for outside scholarships and grants.

In addition, always go to to submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid.  NC State does not require any applications that charge a fee to apply for financial aid.

The letters and emails you receive may claim an affiliation with NC State, but our university does not use or work with these companies. Again, if you have any doubt please check with our office.

Still paying your tuition in person?

Effective April 6, 2009, the University Cashier’s Office is no longer able to accept payment by cash/check in the Harris Hall office. Please contact the Cashier’s Office for more information on payment options.
