Need To Know: Resource Highlight – May 1

Resource Highlight

Financial Aid: FAFSA

The Office of Student Financial Aid at Georgia Regents University is here to assist you through financing your education by providing you with information about federal, state, and institutional loans, grants, scholarships, and work study programs. Our office encourages all current or prospective students to explore their financial options at GRU.

If you intend to apply for aid for next year and have not already done so, please file your 2015-2016 FAFSA now.  Even though the priority deadline has past, applying now can prevent any delays in processing that will occur if the the FAFSA is not filed until later in the summer. Those delays could mean that no financial aid funds would be available for the student to use toward their bills before the fee payment deadline.
