Financial Aid

The Office of Financial Aid helps remove financial barriers and assist students in meeting the cost of attendance at Savannah State University.

Financial Aid provides resources and information about grants, employment and student loans, and counseling or assistance in completing the financial aid application (FAFSA).

Due to limited funds in some programs, The Office of Financial Aid is not always able to offer enough aid to meet each student's financial need. However, alternative sources of assistance may available to students.

The staff is working to streamline your application processing. Students should complete the FAFSA on or after October 1 each year and allow Financial Aid as much time to process applications as possible.
