Georgia Gwinnett College Financial Aid must have all student requirements completed before determining any aid for students.
Use the below instructions to review required documents and determine what action steps are needed. We will be unable to offer, process, or disburse any aid until all required documents have been completed accurately and returned to us.

Your additional requirements can be viewed from your account in Grizzly Den within Banner.

- Select the Financial Aid tab from the top of the screen
- Select Financial Aid Status

Review the Unsatisfied Requirements Section and follow the instructions from each link. In some instances you will be instructed to create a VerifyMyFAFSA account. When creating this account it is important that the requested information be entered exactly as it was entered on your FAFSA.
You will use your GGC user ID and a temporary password. Your temporary password MUST BE formatted as follows:
- First letter of your first name (upper case)
- First (1) letter of your last name (lower case)
- # ( hashtag sign), six digit birthday(MMDDYY)

Once your account has been created you can view and complete the required verification tasks. You can upload missing documents through the secure VerifyMyFAFSA portal.
Deadlines, Payments and Processing Missing Documents
Priority deadline to have your Financial Aid file complete:
- Fall semester: July 6
- Spring semester: Dec. 1
- Summer semester: April 15
Documents turned in after the deadline will still be processed; however, you will be expected to pay your bill in full. Please contact Student Accounts to determine your fee payment deadline. Once your aid is processed, you may be reimbursed the amount of aid you accept once it’s processed.
If the documentation you submit to our office results in a correction of data, we will correct the necessary information and update it with the Department of Education. This could result in a change in your eligibility for financial aid.
Once you have turned in the missing documentation and your financial aid file is complete, please allow two-to-three weeks processing time. You will receive an aid offer, via email, when your award is posted and ready for review.
