Georgia Tech requires you to complete three forms to apply for financial aid:
- Georgia Tech Application for Scholarships and Financial Aid—Students can use the Georgia Tech app to complete and submit it
- FAFSA—You need to submit this form if you’re interested in federal or any need-based aid
- CSS Profile—Students should submit this form only if they want to apply for institutional financial aid programs that consider financial need, among other factors, while picking award recipients. That is because the CSS Profile comes with a $25 fee, and you need to pay an extra $16 to find out if you’re eligible for Georgia Tech institutional aid
The deadline for application submissions is January 31. The Institute will accept late applications but cannot guarantee the availability of funds for all aid programs it offers.
