Financial Aid- Germanna Guarantee Program

admissions background

Germanna Guarantee & The Germanna Community College Mission:

The Mission of Germanna Community College is to provide accessible, quality educational and training opportunities that meet our communities’ changing learning needs.  The Germanna Community College Educational Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization established to promote the growth, progress and well-being of the College and its students through raising, investing and administering private funds to support the mission of the College. 

What is the Germanna Guarantee Program?

The Germanna Guarantee Program (GGP) is a financial assistance program designed to give students who have potential to succeed, and who require additional financial support, the opportunity to pursue and achieve their educational goals at Germanna Community College.  The goal of this program is to ensure that no student is denied access to education at Germanna Community College because of financial need.  The Germanna Guarantee Program complements federal and state financial aid, and is often awarded after these forms of financial aid have been used.

How is the program administered?

  • Students enrolled in a credit program of study at Germanna Community College are eligible for consideration for a Germanna Guarantee Scholarship. 
  • Applicants must have a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0 and be potentially eligible to receive financial aid. 
  • Students must have a current Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file with the GCC Financial Aid Office in order to be considered.  This file is used to verify financial need. 
  • The Financial Aid Office reviews each financial aid applicant for this grant and awards GGP funds to all eligible candidates, in the order their application was received, until funds are exhausted.  
  • The Financial Aid Office sends notification letters to applicants of award approval.  These letters state the amount of award, what expenses the funds may support, (e.g., tuition, books, education-related expenses, or a combination of the above), and the term of the award (e.g., Fall and Spring Semesters, 2009-2010).
