Transfer Students

The first thing students wishing to transfer to Georgia Highlands Colleged should do in regards to their financial aid is log into their current FAFSA and make sure they have listed our school as recipient of their FAFSA information. Our school code for this purpose is 009507. After submitting your FAFSA with our school code, please allow 3-5 business days for the department of education to process your financial aid application and send it to GHC. After 3-5 business days, call the your nearest campus and ask to speak to a financial aid counselor to determine if any further action is required on your part.

Cancel Your Aid

Once you are sure you plan to attend GHC, be sure to contact the financial aid office at your current school to decline any financial aid that you are scheduled to receive during the semester you plan to attend GHC. You will want to do so by July 1 for fall semester and December 1 for spring semester. Federal regulations only allow you to receive aid from one institution per semester. If you plan to continue to take a class or two at another  institution, please refer to out transient student information page.

Confirm Admission Status

You must be fully admitted to GHC before the Office of Financial Aid can award your account. You can check your admission status by clicking here. 


f you have been selected for verification by the Department of Education, we will have to request proper documentation and perform the verification even if it has already been done by your previous institution.
