Applying for Financial Aid

You should fill out the FAFSA each year so you can find out all of the financial aid you are eligible for. Be sure to check your Titan Live email account in case GTCC needs you to turn in documents before we can complete your financial aid award.

 Once you have applied for admission to GTCC, you can check Self-service to see your financial aid award and make adjustments. Please contact the Financial Aid Office if you have any questions regarding how to apply for financial aid.

Our school code is 004838
