The Office of Financial Aid provides assistance for students who, without such aid, would be unable to attend Middle Georgia State University. It is the intention of the university to help as many students as possible by providing assistance with grants, scholarships, loans and/or student employment.

MGA is able to offer many students financial assistance. We realize that despite scholarship assistance and the reasonable cost of a MGA education, you and/or your family may not be able to provide the resources necessary to fund your college education. We hope that no student will fail to consider our institution due to financial reasons.

The Financial Aid Office is committed to helping you find ways to finance your education. Our staff can help you sort through various types of financial aid, including the Georgia HOPE programs and Federal Student Aid Programs.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Financial Aid awards are subject to change without prior notification.

  2. As of October 1, 2017, the 2018-2019 FAFSA is now available.  Students and parents are required to use 2016 tax information to complete.  IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) is available for the 2018-2019 FAFSA.  Additional security and privacy protections have been added to address concerns that data from the tool could be used by identity thieves to file fraudulent tax returns. NOTE: The IRS DRT will continue to be no longer available for the 2017–2018 FAFSA form and the required 2015 tax information must be manually entered. The IRS DRT remains the fastest, most accurate way to input your tax return information into the FAFSA form.  Additional information on the status of the IRS DRT can be found in the link below:
