Checking Your Financial Aid Status

Many of the calls we receive are from students "checking on the status" of their financial aid. Some students are still unaware that this information is available on PAWS. When you call in, you are asking the staff member to look at the same system that you have access to on-line. Save yourself time waiting on the phone and CHECK PAWS FIRST. PAWS will let you know if you have documents that need to be submitted. It provides links to any applicable on-line documents. It will also post your financial aid award information when it has been processed.

Calling the Office of Financial Aid

The Office of Financial Aid uses a phone system to hold calls in the order they are received.  When calling the Office of Financial Aid, please call 912-358-4162 and press option 5.  Listen to the menu option and select the option best fits the service you need.  Any other phone number for our office may go unanswered as staff members are on the phone system answering other calls.  Be mindful that the average Financial Aid call is about 12 minutes long.  So you will have to wait until the next available representative is available.  In addition, some of our calls are monitored and records for quality assurance.
