Most Georgia State students receive some form of merit- or need-based financial aid. About 75% of Georgia State students receive the HOPE Scholarship and many receive federal grants and loans. We also offer a range of assistantship and work-study opportunities to help students earn money for their education.
Most financial aid begins with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Georgia State’s school code is 001574. To apply for the HOPE and Zell Miller Scholarships, students must complete either a FAFSA or the Georgia Student Finance Application (GSFAPP), available at GAfutures.org.
Georgia State begins the awarding process once students are admitted and their FAFSA is received. Students will receive an email or letter about their award. Students should check their Georgia State University email regularly and have their Panther ID number on hand.
In addition to the state-wide HOPE and Zell Miller scholarships, we offer a variety of competitive merit- and need-based scholarships that are made available through the Office of Undergraduate Studies, the Georgia State University Foundation, academic departments and athletics.
