Fall/Spring Returning Financial Aid

Returning students must reapply each year for financial aid. To make it easier, gather the appropriate documents and resources before you begin the application process for the new year. Your PIN number, tax returns, W-2 forms, other records of money earned, and bank statements will be needed.

Documents may be submitted directly to the Office of Financial Aid via US mail, email or fax.  In an effort to safeguard your personal information, the office prefers that documents be submitted via fax to 404.727.6709.

It’s Easy to Apply for Financial Aid

Complete the Renewal FAFSA

You need to complete the Renewal FAFSA. Complete and submit the Renewal FAFSA beginning October 1, 2019. The FAFSA is required to determine eligibility for federal and state student aid. 

You will have fewer questions to answer for 2020–2021 because the Renewal FAFSA will contain some of the information you gave on the 2019–2020 FAFSA. Updates will be needed only for the information that has changed from the prior year.

How to Submit Foreign Tax Documents

Foreign tax returns or foreign country equivalent are required of non-US residents. Provide a signed copy of the foreign taxes, translated to English and converted to USD, and include the currency conversion rate used. Once the CSS Profile is completed with this information, please upload or mail the foreign tax returns or foreign country equivalent to the College Board’s Institutional Documentation Service (IDOC).
