Contacting Our Office

How do I get an answer from financial aid?

With 30,000 undergraduate and graduate students at Georgia Tech we see several hundred inquires each day. Because many responses require extended effort and expertise, our response time to your question will often vary.

We want to do our best to make sure your questions are answered so we’ve developed a set of tips to help you.

Tips for contacting the financial aid office:

  1. Website – We first recommend you search our site with keywords related to your questions. Our website is updated regularly and can often clarify what is needed. We also encourage you to check out our updates page, which has information related to repeated queries we receive.
  2. Electronic Communications – Communicating electrically is often the fastest way to get a response. Inquires that come electronically are checked every day and can allow several staff members to work together to answer your questions. There are two ways to reach us electronically:
       a. Financial aid web form – This form streamlines your questions and allows our advisors to quickly see your question and act on it accordingly. You will need your GT account and password to complete the form.
       b. Email - Our email boxes are checked every day and can allow several staff members to work together to answer your questions
       c. Here is what you need to know about electronic communications
          i. Check OSCAR first as requirements update regularly
          ii. ALWAYS include your 9-digit gtid number - we can’t help you without it
          iii. State the specifics of your question(s) and what needs to be resolved
          iv. Do not submit documents containing tax information or social security numbers over email, we cannot accept them. Upload them through OSCAR or fax them.
