To receive financial aid through Georgia State University, each student must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year. The FAFSA is used to determine eligibility for many scholarships (including general scholarships from the University) and to award a student financial aid in the form of grants, work study, and federal loans. (Alternative educational loans must be applied for separately through a private lender or bank.) The FAFSA is available for completion on October 1 prior to the upcoming aid year, and must be submitted (with valid signatures) by Georgia State’s April 1 priority deadline.
If you completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) when applying for financial aid for the previous academic year, you should receive an email from the U.S. Department of Education with instructions about how to once again submit the application electronically.
The Student Financial Management Center and the Offices of Student Accounts and Financial Aid are available to assist you. We ask all students use Panther Answer to submit their questions.
If you are not a student or you have not been admitted to the university, please send an email to SFMCguest@gsu.edu. Please include your full name and phone number in your message. One of our staff will respond to your question.
