We hope to provide you with full financial aid information as soon as possible; however, the process may not be complete prior to the enrollment deposit deadline. U.S. students should be eligible to borrow the maximum Federal Direct Loan amounts, provided they meet the basic eligibility requirements. Students can also review the additional loan options to determine the best program for covering the remaining amount of their estimated cost of attendance. International applicants are not eligible for Federal student loans.
All enrollment deposits are credited to the first quarter’s tuition payment and are non-refundable.
Students receiving partial tuition coverage through their employer may borrow the difference between the total Cost of Attendance and the amount of their employer contribution
Student loan applications will not be processed until you are admitted to the program, but you can begin the process at any time by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.gov.
No, but you must be enrolled at least half-time for the semester (minimum of one course per module or two courses per semester) to be eligible for aid.

No. Students can borrow as much or as little of the maximum loan amounts available to them.
Your application for admission serves as the application for fellowships. There is no separate application for these awards.
A student’s fellowship amount will reduce her/his tuition balance and is normally credited equally over all payments. The reduction to the tuition amount proportionately reduces the student’s loan eligibility.
Tuition bills are processed through the Office of Student Accounts; however, any specific questions about your tuition charges should be directed to the MBA@UNC Registrar.

Please consult your accountant or tax advisor for specific advice. IRS Publication 970 provides basic information about the tax benefits for education. UNC Kenan-Flagler’s Financial Aid Assistant Director is not a trained accountant and, therefore, is unable to answer tax questions.
No, but in order to be eligible for Federal loan funding, students must be enrolled in at least 4.5 credits per university semester (please note that two quarters [July/October and January/April] are the equivalent to one university semester).
