Financial Aid

Georgia Southern University offers a comprehensive program of financial aid for students who, without such aid, would be unable to continue their education. Through this program an eligible student may receive one or more types of financial aid: Grants, Loans, Scholarships, or Student Employment. Most financial aid at Georgia Southern University is awarded on the basis of a student’s academic progress and proven "financial need," defined as the difference between a family’s estimated resources and the total estimated expense of attending the University. Georgia Southern University uses the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form provided by the U.S. Department of Education to measure a student’s financial aid eligibility. Contact the Office of Financial Aid at (912) 478-5413 for assistance. The Office of Financial Aid, part of the Division of Enrollment Management, is located on the second floor of Rosenwald Building on the Statesboro campus, and on the second floor of Victor Hall on the Armstrong campus. The fax number is (912) 478-7418.
