Step One: File a FAFSA (required for all aid programs except Traineeship)
- The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is a form used by the U.S. Department of Education to determine a candidate’s eligibility for aid. It collects a variety of information about your family’s finances. Every graduate candidate’s FAFSA must be filed as an Independent.
- File the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. To have your FAFSA results sent to Georgetown College, enter our school code (001964) in the school section.
- The FAFSA must be filed annually and can be filed after October 1 each year.
- In order to get your funds as soon as possible and avoid service charges on your student account, we strongly recommend that you file the FAFSA at least a month prior to enrolling.
- The FAFSA you file will be valid for the Fall, Spring, and Summer terms.
- The FAFSA must be filed to determine your eligibility for the following programs: Federal Student Loans and the Federal TEACH Grant.
Step Two: Determine the aid programs you want and for which you are eligible to apply.
