What do transfer students need to know about applying for Financial Aid at Georgia Tech?
- The financial aid award offer will not be final until after all official transcripts from prior schools have been received.
- Financial aid does not "transfer" from one school to another. However, federal and state aid received at one school will impact remaining eligibility at another school.
- Transfer students apply for financial aid through the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid by completing two forms:
- Georgia Tech Application for Scholarships and Financial Aid
- For the 2017-2018 academic year, both forms must be received in the financial aid office by the January 31 deadline for priority consideration. More detailed information about the application process and next steps can be found at Application Steps.
- If forms are completed after the priority consideration deadline, you will be considered for entitlements only (i.e.federal loans, HOPE/Zell, outside scholarships). Please contact your Financial Aid Adviser for additional consideration, which will be reviewed case-by case.
- Any financial aid applications that are complete after July 31st, including missing requirements, will be accepted; however, students should be prepared to make payment by the Fall 2017 fee payment deadline of August 28, 2017 until those documents are reviewed and processed.
- Use of the IRS data retrieval tool is strongly encouraged when completing the FAFSA. Please review application tips when completing the FAFSA.
- You can and should continue looking for outside scholarships. We have a listing of outside scholarships currently accepting applications available.
- Participating in co-op work experiences help many students offset the cost of attendance. Transfer students can explore co-op opportunities as another way to help offset their education costs.
