Get the assistance you need to help you earn the degree you want

We recognize that furthering your education is a significant investment of your time and money, which is why it’s one we want to help you make.

Financial aid is available for students who qualify.


Federal Aid

Have you filled out the FAFSA? The financial aid process all starts with completing and submitting the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This will determine which forms of aid you are eligible for, including:

  • Grants, such as the Pell Grant or the Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)
    • Pell Grants are now offered year-round, allowing eligible students access to funding into the summer, if needed
  • Loans, such as federal subsidized and unsubsidized student loans offered through the U.S. Department of Education

For more details, call us at 866.239.4762

Quick Tip: A subsidized federal loan is based on financial need; the government will pay the interest on the loan until your repayment plan begins. For transfer students, loan payments from other institutions can be deferred if you’re enrolled at least part-time (6 credit hours) at Brenau.


State Aid

The state of Georgia offers financial aid options to Georgia residents who have lived in the state for a minimum of 12 months. Residents must complete and submit the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Eligible students can receive aid in the form of:

  • Georgia Tuition Equalization Grant (GTEG)
    • Must be enrolled full time (12 or more credit hours) in an undergraduate program
  • HOPE Scholarship
    • Available to undergraduate students with a cumulative GPA of 3.0
    • Students must have graduated from high school or earned their GED within the past seven years

Other state aid is available to those who qualify. For more details, call us at 866.239.4762

Quick Tip: What’s the fastest way to find out which state aid programs you qualify for? Apply for the FAFSA immediately after October 1 of each year. Funding for grants is limited, so timing is everything.


Military Experience

Whether you’re on active duty or a veteran, you (and your family) know that being in the military means being more. That’s why, in addition to your VA benefits, Brenau offers its students:

  • Discounted cost of $250 per credit hour on all courses for active-duty military, National Guard and Reservists
  • A 10% tuition discount for veterans, retirees, spouses and dependents of active duty personnel
  • Potential credit for your military training or previous work experience
  • Military-specific support through our office of Military and Veterans Services
  • VA educational benefits are available to those who qualify

For more details, call us at 866.239.4762

Quick Tip: Our commitment to our armed forces began as an on-base presence at Kings Bay, Georgia, and continues today through our association with the Naval Air Station in Jacksonville.


Scholarships

There are a number of scholarships outside of Brenau that can help you with tuition. Many do not have academic requirements and some even cater to working professionals returning to school.

Quick Tip: A great resource for scholarship-hunting is fastweb.com. Create a profile and get notifications about scholarships that match your qualifications and area of study.


Brenau focuses on finances

Our goal is to help every student achieve their goal of earning a degree, which is why we focus on – and have been nationally recognized for – providing the best value programs at a highly competitive cost.
