A Message from Louis Scott, Director of the Financial Aid Office

Preparing to attend college is an exciting time in your life, and we are pleased that you are considering Georgia State University. Information on this website will assist you in making this important decision, whether you will be an entering freshman or a transfer student.

There are many reasons to choose one college over another and we’d like to think that cost is the least significant. However, we know that cost, and therefore financial assistance, are sometimes crucial to the decision-making process. The staff members of the Office of Financial Aid want to assist you and your family in any way possible as you sort through the maze of financial aid programs and budgeting issues. And please do not hesitate to contact us; we can be reached by phone, e-mail, or in person. We hope you discover what we already know — Georgia State University is the right place for you.

Louis Scott received his bachelor’s degree from Georgia State University (’94) in Criminal Justice. He has worked at Georgia State University for the past 16 years, and the last two as Director of Financial Aid.
