SGCEP Fees and Financial Aid
All fees are payable the day of registration for all students. Students
applying for financial aid are responsible for making sure the aid will
cover all expenses and fees for attendance. Twelve or more semester hours
are considered full-time, nine to eleven hours are considered three-quarter
time, six to eight hours are considered half time, and less than six hours
are considered part time.
Refunds for students who formally withdraw from SGCEP prior to midterm are
calculated based upon the time of withdrawal during the semester. Once the
established drop/add date has passed each semester, a student who reduces
the number of semester hours is not entitled to any refund of tuition.
A parking permit from the Parking & Transportation office is optional for
each student. The cost of the permit is $50 per academic year.
SGCEP Students receive their financial aid from South Georgia College (SGC).
Correspondence should be addressed to the Financial Aid Office, South
Georgia College Entry Program, 1500 N. Patterson Ave, Valdosta, GA 31698.
The office may be reached by telephone at 229.333.5891.
Students must be accepted to SGCEP before action can be taken on financial
aid. The student's financial need is determined through the use of the Free
Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students receiving financial
aid must be registered for selective service. Each student must certify that
he/she is not in default on any Title IV educational loans, does not owe a
repayment on any Title IV educational grants, and has not borrowed in excess
of loan limits.
An applicant for financial aid is requested to have the results from the
FAFSA in the Financial Aid Office by May 1 for fall term. Applications
received after this date will be considered as long as funds are available,
in the order of the date of receipt. A student enrolled less than full-time
will receive full consideration for financial aid. A student must be working
toward a degree to receive federal financial aid. Financial Aid is awarded
in the forms of Federal Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Educational
Grants, Federal Work-Study, HOPE Scholarships, Federal Stafford Student
Loans, and Federal Parent Loans (PLUS).
First-time recipients of federal financial assistance must meet the
admission requirements of the college, and by a signed document, acknowledge
awareness and acceptance of the standards set forth in the College Catalog.
To continue receiving financial aid, students are expected to achieve
certain minimum levels of academic progress that are outlined in the
