Other financing methods

Check out the information about the Coverdell Education Savings Account.

As a federally chartered credit union, LGFCU cannot participate in the College Foundation of North Carolina programs, but their website is a good resource for information on many college-oriented topics. Visit www.cfnc.org.

There are many grants and scholarships available for students based on financial need, merit and other special interests. You should also talk to other students, guidance counselors, advisors and your parents to get ideas and find sources for educational funding.
