Need help paying for college? Don’t worry! We are here to help. At Georgia Northwestern Technical College we believe in helping students achieve their goals. To avoid common pitfalls in applying and completing your financial aid file, view Seven Ways to Delay Your Financial Aid and the Academic Calendars section of our Schedules & Calendars page for deadlines.
If you are enrolling in classes for Spring 2024 or Summer 2024 (January 2024-June 2024) and are interested in both state aid (ex: HOPE Grant/Scholarship) and federal aid (ex: Pell & loans), then you will need to complete *two* separate types of applications. The Georgia Student Financial Aid Application (GSFAPP) and the 23-24 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) using 2021 taxes & W2s. Our Federal School Code is 004024. For more information on applying for aid, please view the How to Apply link below.
Step 1: Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
Step 2: Complete the Georgia Student Financial Aid Application (GSFAPP)
It is also highly recommended that students go ahead and complete the 24-25 FAFSA using 2022 taxes & W2s once it becomes available to be completed in January.
Processed applications may come in requesting additional documents (we will not know until they load in). Please Complete the applications at least four weeks ahead of the Financial Aid Priority Deadline to allow time for completing/submitting any additional documents that may be needed by the priority deadline listed on our Academic Calendars.
