Financial Aid & Residency Information

Financial Aid

The Office of Financial Aid is available to assist you with your financial needs and questions about funding your education. Visit their website to chat live with a Financial Aid Counselor during office hours (Monday – Friday from 8 am to 5 pm). 

As a transfer student, your financial aid does not automatically transfer from one school to another. You must cancel aid at your current school and re-apply for aid at Georgia Southern. Visit Financial Aid for more information.

Learn more about Financial Aid with Blake Mercer:


Residency & Tuition Classification

Students are classified as residents or non-residents based on the Georgia Southern application for admission. Any information indicating ties to another state (out-of-state address, out-of-state school, out-of-state driver’s license, etc.) will result in an out-of-state classification. Learn more about residency here, and if you have questions about your residency status, email after your acceptance.
