We believe getting a college degree doesn't mean you should get buried in debt. So we created Pack Promise—NC State University's guarantee that our neediest students will receive 100% of their financial aid requirements through a combination of scholarships, grants, Federal Work-Study employment and need-based loans. Mentoring and counseling, academic support and advising, undergraduate research opportunities and financial aid counseling put your success as a college student who graduates on time well within reach.
Incoming freshman who have a family income at or below 150% of the federal poverty level—with limited assets—may be eligible.
how it works
Funds are delivered through a combination of scholarships, grants, Federal Work-Study employment, and need-based loans. NC State is committed to ensuring a low-debt education for students with significant financial need. Visit the Pack Promise website for additional details.
