Other Scholarship Information
Scholarships for Entering Freshmen
Most scholarships available to entering freshman are offered to students who are selected to participate in the annual Presidential Scholarship Competition. The competition for Fall 2010 Freshmen will be held on December 4, 2009. For online registration and more information please visit the official Presidential Scholarship Competition website. If you have additional questions, contact the Office of Admissions and New Student Programs at (478) 445-0948.
Students must be enrolled full-time during both fall and spring semesters in order to receive their scholarships. Be aware that hometown churches, clubs, professional organizations, and civic groups sometimes offer scholarships. Students who are awarded a scholarship from a source other than Georgia College should contact the Scholarship Coordinator in the Financial Aid Office for further information. For more information on any scholarship questions, contact the Financial Aid Office at (478) 445-5149.
Scholarships for Returning Students
The GC Financial Aid Office maintains an on-line Scholarship application for all institutional funds which is accessed via the student's on-line access account. Typically, the scholarship application is available late Fall Semester for the upcoming academic year with most deadlines being the first Friday of February.
General criteria for most institutional scholarships are as follows:
Full-time enrollment for Fall and Spring semesters (12 hours for undergraduate and 9 hours for graduate)
Completion of 24 hours at GC by the end of Spring Semester (students may apply before completion of these hours)
Minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA; however, these scholarships are competitive.
