Financial Aid for Adult Students

Our adult degree program tuition includes a built-in scholarship for every student. In addition, you may qualify for need-based federal and state financial aid.

To apply for aid, you will need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and include Oglethorpe’s FAFSA code 001586. Adult students who file the FAFSA will be considered for all federal aid programs.

Federal aid programs include:

  • Pell and SEOG Grants
  • Subsidized and Unsubsidized Stafford Loans
  • PLUS loans for parents
  • Perkins Loans
  • Federal Work-study

The priority freshman FAFSA filing deadline is Feb. 1, priority FAFSA date for all continuing students is April 1, but we will work with students who want to file the FAFSA at any time throughout the year.

Learn more about these programs at the Federal Student Aid website.

State aid programs

Full-time students (12 credits per semester) who are verified Georgia residents may be eligible for the GA Tuition Equalization Grant (GTEG) and could potentially qualify for the HOPE scholarship. More information is available on the GAcollege411 website.

Veterans programs

Students using any Veterans Benefits (GI Bill, Post 9/11 GI Bill, Survivors & Dependents Assistance, etc.) can receive help through our Registrar’s Office, and most of the process is handled online.
