The financial aid program at Galveston College attempts to provide financial assistance to those students who, without such aid, would not be able to pursue higher education. The primary responsibility for financing an education rests with the student and their family; however, Galveston College is aware that assistance beyond the family’s resources sometimes becomes necessary. In cases where financial need for eligible students is documented, Galveston College will assist, to the extent possible, using all available local, state, and federal funds.
Grants are funds that do not have to be repaid unless, you withdraw from school or owe a refund. All grants are awarded to students with financial need. The amount of some grants depends on the cost of attendance, expected family contribution, enrollment status, and whether you attend a full academic year. There are two types of grants awarded by Galveston College, federal grants and state (Texas) grants.LEARN MORE
