Financial Planning and Expenses

The Office of Student Financial Planning exists to help students who would be unable to attend Georgetown College without financial assistance. A student’s financial assistance award is designed to supplement the contributions of the student and family. Financial assistance comes in a combination of scholarships, grants, loans, or work opportunities. Typically, students will receive more than one type of assistance. 

Freshmen and transfer students who have been admitted, who have filed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in a timely manner, and whose Student Aid Reports are received will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. A student who receives financial assistance is responsible for refiling a FAFSA each year. All institutional aid is available for a maximum of eight semesters of enrollment. Students who enroll beyond eight semesters may write a letter of appeal to the Director of Financial Planning to request institutional aid beyond that maximum. Assistance is renewed on the basis of the past year’s academic record and current eligibility. Even those who do not qualify for need- based aid may qualify for academic and/or other non-need scholarships, thanks to the generous donations of various individuals and organizations.
