Transfer Student Information

  • If you are transferring to Middle Georgia State University and have already completed a FAFSA for 2021-2022, you only need to add our school to your application. The federal school code is 001581.
  • If you only want to receive the Hope or Zell Miller Scholarship, complete the GSFAPPS at gafutures.org and list Middle Georgia State University as a receiving school for the application.

If you are planning to attend MGA as a Transient Student, please begin the process to receive financial aid at your home school. After your status has been reviewed, your home school will communicate with our Financial Aid Office regarding your eligibility. Don’t delay, if you are registered for classes, regardless of your status, you will need to pay your fees by the payment deadline.

Summer Financial Aid Information

Students, other than Transients, who will be attending MGA for the first time during summer semester 2022 should complete a Summer Financial Aid Application.  By completing this application, our office will review your eligibility and determine if you have remaining financial aid for the 2021-2022 aid year. The only other students who would need to submit a summer financial aid application would be those who declined their Federal Direct Student Loan offer during the aid year, but now intend to borrow. Summer Financial Aid Application directions are available at this link: Campus Logic Instructions  

Refunds

After all tuition and fees have been paid and attendance verified for enrolled students, the Bursar’s Office will begin issuing refunds. Refunds are tentatively scheduled to be disbursed beginning June 20, 2022.
