The UNCG Guarantee program helps low-income, in-state students graduate from UNCG in four years with little or no debt, while also providing a support program to encourage academic and personal success. Students at or below the federal poverty level who show academic promise are provided four years of full-tuition assistance. In turn, these students must participate in academic support services, including development of a customized academic plan.
