How To Apply For Aid
- To apply for financial aid you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for federal, state, some Perimeter College scholarships, as well as outside scholarships. Do this right away: your financial aid cannot be processed until this step is complete.
- Complete the FAFSA even if you or your parents think you will not qualify for federal aid. You may be eligible for aid from other sources.
- It is faster and easier to apply online. You can download an instructional worksheet to help you complete your FAFSA online. Print a copy for your records.
- When you complete the FAFSA, list the correct school code. Georgia State University’s Federal School Code is: 001574.
Worksheets and forms are also available at all the Perimeter College campuses financial aid offices.
