How do I apply for financial aid? When is Georgia State’s deadline for the FAFSA?
The FAFSA priority deadline is April 1. Visit sfs.gsu.edu for the application process and deadlines.
I have already applied, but now can’t attend until a later semester. What can I do?
A student’s application is valid for a total of three terms of entry, including the term marked initially on the application. To be considered for a term of entry within this time frame, you must submit a reactivation application. Students who do not reactivate their application during this allotted time are required to submit a new application, new application fee and any new transcripts (if applicable) to be considered for admission.
I have already submitted my transcript to another college. Can I ask them to forward a copy to you or can you take the transferred courses off of their transcript?
Unfortunately, we are unable to do so. You must provide official transcripts from all institutions and they must arrive in a sealed envelope directly from the home institution. The transcript(s) can either be mailed directly to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions or brought in as long as it remains unopened and in the original package. Schools can mail transcripts directly to the address below.
