Freshmen Beginning Summer 2018 Semester

Please read below for additional information on summer financial aid for first-year students who have been admitted to start summer 2018.

The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid (OSFA) provides some forms of aid to eligible applicants during the summer session. Grants and institutional scholarships are very limited and are typically not available for summer.

Summer Application Requirements

Students who wish to be considered for financial aid for summer must complete the 2017-2018 Georgia Tech Application for Scholarships and Financial Aid (GT APP).

In addition to the GT APP, if you wish to be considered for federal financial aid, such as Federal Pell Grant and/or Federal Direct Student/Parent Loans, you must also complete the 2017-2018 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This application is available until June 30, 2018.

If you do not want to be considered for federal financial aid; however, you are a HOPE/Zell Miller Scholarship recipient and want to only receive your Scholarship for the summer term, you do not need to complete the 2017-2018 FAFSA, however, you must complete the State of Georgia’s GSFAPPS application, as well as the GT APP.


Types of Financial Aid

For those students who meet the eligibility requirements, the following types of financial aid are available for summer semester:
