GCC offers complete financial aid services/programs at both the Locust Grove Campus and the Fredericksburg Area Campus.

It’s not too late to apply for spring 2017 financial aid! Submit the 2016-2017 Free Application for Federal Student Aid now for the fall 2016 – summer 2017 semesters.

  • The 2017-2018 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is now available! For this aid year only, you will be using the same taxes as for the prior FAFSA year (if you submitted a FAFSA for 2016-2017). 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 are available from Federal Student Aid.
  • The priory date for submitting the 2017-2018 FAFSA to Germanna is April 1.

Important Information
