Student Access Loan - Technical Program Information

The Student Access Loan is administered by Georgia Student Finance Commission and is funded by state general funds and proceeds from the Georgia Lottery for education. This loan program is designed to be funding of last resort for college students who have a gap in their college financing. Loans, or portions of the loans, may be forgivable for recipients who graduate with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 as determined by Georgia Student Finance Commission. Loan funds may be used towards any part of the student's cost of attendance. The interest rate on the loan is 1% and borrowers are required to make monthly Keep In Touch payments while the student is enrolled. Students may borrow up to $3,000 per year.

Students must be Georgia residents and United States citizens or Eligible Non-Citizens. Students will be randomly selected from the pool of all applicants. To be eligible for the Student Access Loan Technical Program, students must have applied for other student financial aid including federal and state scholarships and grants.
