We understand that the cost of education has risen, however, the Office of Financial Aid is here to assist all students by improving the students' knowledge of aid. Scholarships, grants, and loans are all ways a student may fund their education. We want Armstrong’s students to be aware of the many opportunities to finance an education.
To renew your financial aid each year follow these Steps
- Apply for a Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID at fsaid.ed.gov. An FSA ID is needed for you and one parent to provide information and electronically "sign" your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and other financial aid forms.
- Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov.
If you plan to attend Fall 2018/Spring 2019/Summer 2019 and need assistance paying for your educational expenses please complete the 2018-2019 FAFSA, available online October 1, 2017 at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov.
ATTENTION: During this transition, you should INCLUDE BOTH SCHOOL CODES when completing your FAFSA:
Armstrong State University - 001546
Georgia Southern University - 001572
