Course Program of Study

Only courses required for degree completion can be used to determine your aid eligibility for Federal financial aid programs such as grants, work-study, and loans and does not include HOPE or Zell Miller scholarships. This means that a course must fulfill a core, major, minor, or degree requirement or be necessary to help you earn the total hours required for your degree. Taking courses that are not required to complete your degree could result in your receiving less or no federal aid or in owing money back to Georgia College. You are responsible for registering for appropriate coursework and for notifying the Office of Financial Aid if you choose to enroll in courses that are not necessary for your degree. For more information, please see Course Program of Study FAQ.

Exception: If you are taking preparatory coursework that is required for another eligible program and enrolled in at least half time in these courses, you may qualify to receive Federal Direct Loans for one consecutive 12-month period beginning on the first day of the loan period. For more information, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 478-445-5149.
