Types of Aid
- Grants – typically need-based and do not have to be repaid (unless you withdraw from school and owe a refund)
- Loans – money borrowed to pay for college that must be repaid with interest
- Scholarships – may be need-based, program-based, or merit-based and generally do not have to be repaid
- Workforce Investment Act – targets the needs of unemployed and low income American Indians in North Carolina

Tuition payment plans break down your tuition balance into affordable monthly payments. There is no interest, payment options are flexible, setup fees are affordable, and it is easy to enroll!

Student Eligibility Information
Certain grants, scholarships and loans are need based. The Department of Education will determine your need based on information that you put on your FAFSA. This amount is called your Estimated Family Contribution (EFC). FTCC will use this formula to determine need.
Those individuals who elect to participate in the William D. Ford Subsidized and Unsubsidized loan program should be aware that loans awarded are disbursed each semester in three installments. The amount due each student is affected by the number of credit hours taken plus the start date of the courses taken.
Many of FTCC’s degrees and programs are eligible for federal financial aid. See a current list of all eligible programs.
Financial Aid & Scholarship Handbook
The Financial Aid & Scholarship Handbook provides a complete guide to Financial Aid at FTCC including policies and the types of aid available.
Fayetteville Technical Community College (FTCC) regularly evaluates student achievement/success using an annual assessment of Basic Skills Student Progress, GED Diploma Passing Rate, Developmental Student Success Rate in College-Level English Courses, Developmental Student Success Rate in College-Level Math Courses, First Year Progression, Curriculum Student Completion, Licensure and Certification Passing Rates, and College Transfer Performance.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 is a federal law that protects the confidential nature of students’ educational records. (Educational records are records such as academic records, attendance records, disciplinary records, and financial records.) FERPA requires Fayetteville Technical Community College to protect students’ educational records from disclosure, even to their parents, except in some limited circumstances defined by federal law. However, students may authorize the release of their own educational records by completing the Consent for Release of Student Information Eform, located in their Financial Aid Eforms in WebAdvisor.
