Undergraduate Financial Aid
International Student Scholarships (ISS)
These scholarships are awarded as either a full out-of-state tuition waiver or a half out-of-state tuition waiver, and are awarded on the basis of demonstrated academic ability, evidence of extra-curricular involvement and financial need. To be considered for the ISS, applicants must have on file a completed application for admission and completed ISS application by the stated deadline. Those international students who have not been awarded an ISS prior to attendance at Georgia College can compete once a year for a limited number of available ISSs. Applications for the International Student Scholarship are included in the International Student Undergraduate Application for Admission form.

Students who are admitted by February 1 for fall semester are automatically considered for most academic scholarships. Those students who apply by November 1 are given preference. The selection process is highly competitive.
