Golf College Application Process

Students interested in applying for financial aid must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This application must be completed online. The information provided on the FAFSA will be evaluated by the Student Finance office and, if eligible, the student will be sent an award letter listing the types and amounts of financial assistance available. These could include various college grants, college loans, or funds from additional financial aid resources.

Prior to disbursement of any financial aid funds, students (if selected) must complete a verification process which documents certain information they have provided. In addition, all students receiving financial aid are required to participate in an entrance interview/counseling session.

Students are cautioned that awards are made based on the accuracy of the information they provide and on the availability of program funds. Reductions in funding, over which the Academy has no control, or changes in the eligibility status due to verification discrepancies or changes in enrollment status, may amend initial awards. Students must maintain Satisfactory Progress in order to continue eligibility for financial aid.

Students are ineligible for financial aid if they owe a refund on any grant, are in default on any loan, or have borrowed in excess of established loan limits under Title IV financial aid programs at any other institution.
