Financial Aid Information

The Georgia Virtual Technical Connection (GVTC) does not administer financial aid.
Please check with the Office of Financial Aid at your nearest technical college for Financial Aid information.

The following guidelines should help you in your search for financial assistance.

The Technical College System of Georgia colleges offer comprehensive financial aid programs that include grants and scholarships that are non-repayable. All financial aid is to assist with educational costs. Financial aid awards are determined based on federal and state regulations and institutional policy.

In order to be considered for any federal or state aid programs, a student must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). It is required that students apply or renew every academic year in order to continue receiving financial aid. Applications can be picked up at any college's financial aid office or online at

The student sends the FAFSA directly to the Federal Government, who in turn issues a Student Aid Report (SAR). The SAR is then sent to the student's home college's financial aid office. A student's financial aid file is complete when the student has taken these steps and the financial aid office issues an award letter.

Currently Enrolled Students
If you are currently enrolled in a participating GVTC college that institution will administer any financial aid for which you might qualify. If you are taking courses from other institutions, your "home institution" will still administer your financial aid.

GVTC college's financial aid offices provide assistance with completing applications. To contact a financial aid representative via email, choose the appropriate college from the list of TCSG colleges.

Students needing financial assistance are encouraged to complete a FAFSA in order to apply for the types of assistance described below:
