Welcome to Galveston College Financial Aid Office. Our office is here to help you and your family plan for the cost of college. We will assist you with applying for financial aid, veterans benefits, scholarships, and other financial aid opportunities. Please stop by to meet our friendly and knowledgeable staff.
The application to apply for federal aid or Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is FREE to complete. Please do not pay to fill out the FAFSA.
If you are a returning student or a new student, you must complete a NEW FAFSA application every year starting October 1.
The 2019-20 FAFSA application is now available.
The 2019-20 FAFSA application covers Fall 2019, Spring 2020,
and Summer 2020 semesters.
- On the 2019–20 FAFSA form, you (and your parents, as appropriate) will report your 2017 income information.
- Since you’ll already have filed your 2017 taxes by the time the FAFSA form launches, you’ll be able to import your tax information into the FAFSA form right away using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT). (No more logging back in to update after filing taxes!)
- Not everyone is eligible to use the IRS DRT and the IRS DRT does not input all the financial information required on the FAFSA form. Therefore, you should have your 2017 tax return and 2017 IRS W-2 available for reference.
- Galveston College School Code is 004972
