2022-2023 Academic Year
For purposes of determining final award amounts and disbursement amounts, Georgia Southern University uses a recalculation date for each term. This date is always the day after the initial drop/add period of the term. Pell awards and disbursement eligibility are based on the enrollment of the student at that date.
|Fall 2021 (August – December)||August 17, 2021|
|Spring 2022 (January – May)||January 14, 2022|
|Summer 2022 (May – July)||TBA|
Students in violation of satisfactory academic progress standards who want to be considered for financial aid eligibility must submit documentation by certain deadlines, as indicated below. Review the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy for more information. Appeals submitted after the final deadline may not be considered until the next semester.
|Fall 2021||August 17th|
|Spring 2022||January 14th|
|Summer 2022||May 20th|
Once appeals are received, they will be forwarded to the Satisfactory Academic Progress committee for review. The committees meet weekly to review submitted appeals on a first-come, first-served basis.
YOU MUST BE PREPARED TO PAY YOUR BALANCE DUE TO AVOID CANCELLATION OF YOUR CLASSES WHILE YOUR APPEAL IS PENDING.
Classes will not be held while an appeal is being reviewed.
