Applying for Financial Aid


Begin Here | Applying for Financial Aid

There are many financial aid programs that you should acquire about and apply for. For most of the Federal Student Aid programs require a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), while other programs have their own application such as the TU Scholarship application or the Georgia HOPE & Georgia Tuition Equalization Grant Program (GTEG) (for Georgia Residents only).


Explore the FAFSA and Scholarship application links to learn how and when to submit these applications and what to expect next.


Financial Aid Application Availability

The first step in applying for financial aid is completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The U.S. Department of Education offers a free online application process for your convenience. Be sure you select the correct FAFSA year for the school year you will attend Thomas University. Each school year at TU begins fall term in August.

Before completing the FAFSA make sure to:

  1. For the Spring 2019 Summer 2019, students will need to complete the 2018/19 FAFSA. For the Fall 2019 and Spring 2020, students will need to complete the 2019/20 FAFSA using the school code 001555.

To fill out a FAFSA, you can manually input your tax information. Remember, if you’re filling out the 2018-19 FAFSA form, your 2016 tax information is required.

  1. Once completed, you will receive notification by mail and/or email from the Department of Education confirming your application has been received, processed, and notifying you if you are selected for verification. If selected, additional forms and processes are necessary to process your funds. Please contact the Financial Aid Office at (229) 584-2460 or email us at for assistance.


 The FAFSA for the 2018/2019 school year which begins Fall 2018 is open now.


NEW! The FAFSA for the 2019/2020 school year which begins Fall 2019 will be available soon on October 1, 2018. Learn more about Early FAFSA.


Applying isn’t the last step; your FAFSA has to be processed, and then you get an Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which TU will use to figure out how much aid you can get


Find out more about what happens after you fill out the FAFSA, including how aid is calculated and when and how you’ll get your aid.


FAFSA Verification | What to do if your FAFSA is selected for verification.


Admission to the University is required before your financial aid eligibility can be determined.
