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:
We will work with students who want to file the FAFSA at any time throughout the year, but we encourage students to complete it at least a month before the intended semester start date to ensure adequate processing time.
Learn more about these programs at the Federal Student Aid website.
State aid programs
Full-time students (12 credits per semester) who have been Georgia residents for at least 24 months may be eligible for the Georgia Tuition Equalization Grant (GTEG) and could potentially qualify for the HOPE scholarship. More information is available on the GA Futures website.
Students using any Veterans Benefits (VA Education Benefits, Post 9/11 VA Education Benefits, Survivors & Dependents Assistance, etc.) can receive help through our Hub for Enrollment Services, and most of the process is handled online.
