Welcome to the Office of Financial Aid

With an unparalleled combination of academic excellence and affordability, Georgia Southern is consistently rated as an excellent value in higher education. And with research showing college graduates will earn more than $1 million more during their lifetimes than those without a degree, it’s clear Georgia Southern is a good investment. 

We help families from diverse economic backgrounds achieve their college dreams through a combination of scholarships, grants and loans. Find out more about our commitment to affordability here or see how Georgia Southern compares to other University System of Georgia’s public colleges and universities in a new tool that provides all the information you need about degree attainment, student success, costs and affordability.

We can help you get the funding and support you need. Our counselors are available to assist both students and parents during regular office hours, offering support in-person, by email or by phone. For students who cannot meet during regular office hours, we offer the flexibility to schedule after-hours appointments.

2024/2025 Important FAFSA Updates

The 2024-25 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is now live! The Department of Education will not release applicant information to the university until April. Once we receive information from the Department of Education, we expect to release new student awards in May and continuing student awards later in May.

Updates to the One-time Federal Student Loan Debt Relief

The Supreme Court issued a decision blocking moving forward with a one-time student debt relief plan. Visit StudentAid.gov/debtrelief to learn more about the actions President Biden announced following the decision and find out how this decision impacts you.

Student loan borrowers can get lower payments from the new SAVE Plan. If you sign up for the REPAYE Plan now, you will automatically be enrolled in the SAVE Plan before payments resume.

Virtual Appointments are Available

Our offices are now open to assist students. However, in an effort to maintain social distancing, we encourage you to meet with our staff virtually.
