The mission of the Department of Financial Aid is to remove financial barriers to student enrollment and retention at Georgia Southern University. We seek to assure that any qualified student, who desires to pursue and complete an education at this university, can obtain appropriate resources to do so.
The Financial Aid Office seeks to provide financial aid services which are accessible, sensitive to individual student needs, and effective in enabling students to bridge the gap between family resources and educational expenses. The delivery of services and financial aid awards will be characterized by timeliness, accuracy, and clarity, and will be accomplished through the simplest procedures consistent with fiscal responsibility and governmental and university regulations. The Financial Aid Office is committed to provide student borrowers with loan counseling and information about loan indebtedness and repayment responsibilities. In responding to the diverse and changing needs of the university community, a spirit of cooperation and an approach which is flexible, equitable, innovative, and broad will be maintained.
The Financial Aid Office maintains a strong commitment to extending our knowledge through research on financial aid issues and problems and seeks to assume a leadership role in developing a comprehensive system of student financial support services. The quality of the staff, services, and research efforts will identify the Department of Financial Aid as a center for expertise on financial aid at Georgia Southern University and the financial aid profession.
