Announcement:  A majority of support services will be closed on Fridays from 2:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m for staff professional development.  

GCC offers complete financial aid services/programs at both the Locust Grove Campus and the Fredericksburg Area Campus. Staff at both campuses are available to provide information and assistance with financial aid programs.

Apply now for 2016-2017 Financial Aid (this application is for the fall 2016 – summer 2017 semesters) and the priority deadline is May 1.  

  • The 2017-2018 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will be available Oct. 1, 2016. This makes submitting the FAFSA much easier as students and families will be using tax information from prior-prior year taxes. For example, for the 2016-2017 FAFSA students and families used 2015 tax information (prior year). With the change to prior-prior year for 2017-2018, families will use the 2015 tax information instead of the 2016 tax information, allowing the FAFSA to be submitted much easier and earlier. More resources and information is available from the Federal Student Aid.

Important Information
