It is important for you to fully understand the kinds of awards that are possible at Georgia Tech and to understand the information on the award letter about specific awards that are offered to individual students. Awards become disbursements in the days immediately before the first day of class for a term and also during the term. Disbursement is contingent on meeting fund-specific requirements and on appropriate enrollment. Please note that for federal and state financial aid, audit coursework does not count toward enrollment requirements. Active participation in classes is a requirement for continued eligibility.
