Be enrolled (or accepted for enrollment) at least halftime at an eligible non-profit Title IV institution in a degree-seeking program.

Be a North Carolina resident or attending a North Carolina school.

Be credit-worthy and have the required credit score, or have a co-signer who meets the credit requirements.
