As a college student, your life is constant change-where you're living, how many credits you're taking, when you're planning to study abroad. Some of these changes could affect your financial aid award.
By all means look for external scholarships because it's more aid you don't have to repay. Additional scholarships could reduce your loan or work-study eligibility, but they will not affect the gift aid you receive from Greenville-unless your total amount of gift aid exceeds the tuition, room, and board paid to Greenville. Please go here to research more about external scholarships and grants.
You must be enrolled full time to receive Greenville College grants and scholarships. If you're considering dropping credits or withdrawing from college mid-term, you should contact us before reducing credits to see how your aid will change.
Students who engage in off-campus study often develop a deeper knowledge and understanding of themselves and the world around them. This translates into gaining perspective which makes them valuable members of any community. Please go here to get more information about off-campus study opportunities.
Individuals or families who experience reduced income due to a job loss or change may submit an appeal form. Contact the Financial Aid Office to obtain the proper worksheet.
