Financial Aid- Tuition Payments

admissions background

How do I use financial aid to pay my tuition?

You must have a Financial Aid Award to use financial aid to pay your tuition. Students who have been awarded financial aid may use their financial aid for payment of tuition.  Students that are not eligible for financial aid at Germanna may also enroll in the Automatic Payment Plan.  Our Business Office can assist you with enrolling in this. Please see a cashier at either campus location or visit Germanna’s website for more details on payment options or the Automatic Payment Plan.

GCC Online Web Registration 

Students with a financial aid award and who register over the web should check MyGCC and verify that a financial aid award is displayed for the term of registration. Students who have a financial aid award displayed on MyGCC only need to register for classes and the classes will be held by the financial aid award. No payment is required at the time of registration unless you owe tuition and fees which exceed your financial aid awards. Financial aid awards will be adjusted at the end of the add/drop period. Students who no longer have enough financial aid to cover tuition and fees will be notified to contact the Business Office for payment. You may contact the Business Office to verify that your classes are held by financial aid.

In Person Registration 

Students with a financial aid award and who register in person will have classes held by the financial aid award. No payment is required at the time of registration unless you owe tuition and fees which exceed your financial aid awards. Students should check MyGCC and verify that a financial aid award is displayed for the term of registration. Financial aid awards will be adjusted at the end of the add/drop period. Students who no longer have enough financial aid to cover tuition and fees will be notified to contact the Business Office for payment. You may contact the Business Office to verify that your classes are held by financial aid.

If you decide not to attend after you have registered you must drop the class(es) to avoid charges.  If you do not have sufficient financial aid to cover your tuition costs you must pay the difference prior to the start of classes.

Dropping and Adding Classes 

Students who drop and add classes after charging tuition are personally responsible for payment of additional charges. Financial aid students should see the Financial Aid Office prior to any class changes. Remember that withdrawal for any reason after the refund period will have a negative effect on your ability to receive financial aid in the future.
