NC Longleaf Complete Grant

The application deadline has passed.

Are you an adult learner who started at College of The Albemarle (COA) but had to drop out or were unable to complete your program? A new funding source is available to help you finish your credential.

The NC Longleaf Complete Grant is designed to help “near-completers” — those who have finished at least 30 credit hours in their program of study — pay for classes needed to complete that program. The amount you may be awarded ranges from $500 to $1,300 based on the number of credit hours you take, and can be combined with other financial aid.

Eligibility

To be eligible, you must:

  1. Be 24 years old or older
  2. Have completed at least 30 credit hours towards your program of study
  3. Be a past COA student who has not been enrolled since spring 2020 or before

Awards

Awards are based on the number of credit hours you enroll in for spring 2021.

  • $500 — if you enroll for 1 – 5 credit hours
  • $900 — if you enroll in 6 – 11 credit hours
  • $1,300 — if you enroll in 12 or more credit hours

These amounts are designed to cover tuition costs.
