Funding a Graduate Education

UNC Charlotte is committed to helping you to learn about the many options available to finance your education. In addition to the information on this website, philanthropic funding opportunities can also be searched using the Niner Scholars Database.  Download the Graduate School pamphlet that also includes a plethora of information on how to pay for graduate school.

Residency Determination

The Residency Determination Office evaluates Residence and Tuition Status Applications and assigns the appropriate residency classification for tuition purposes to students consistent with the requirements of the state law and provisions of the North Carolina State Residence Classification Manual.  Their office in Denny 114 also provides information about residency to students, staff and the University community.  Visit the RDO website.

Academic Departments

Your Graduate Program Director can help you to learn more about aid in your academic department, college, and beyond.  Generally, nominations for student funding come to the Graduate School directly from the Graduate Program Director.
