Federal Aid

Free Application for Federal Student Aid

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) serves as an application for the Pell Grant, Federal Work-Study, Federal Direct Loans, State Scholarships, State Grants and some UNG Foundation Scholarships. The FAFSA must be completed once every academic year. The standard academic year consists of Fall, Spring and Summer semesters. It is highly recommended that students complete the FAFSA as soon as tax returns have been completed.

The UNG School Code for the FAFSA is 001585.

Note: Regardless of which campus you attend, select University of North Georgia Dahlonega, GA

Federal Grants

Federal Pell Grant Program

The Federal Pell Grant Program provides need-based grants to low-income undergraduate students to promote access to postsecondary education. Grant amounts are dependent on: the student's expected family contribution (EFC as determined by the FAFSA); the cost of attendance (as determined by the institution); the student's enrollment status (full-time or part-time); and whether the student attends for a full academic year or less.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) Program

The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) Program provides need-based grants to help low-income undergraduate students finance the costs of postsecondary education. When making FSEOG awards, the institution must give priority to those students with “exceptional need” (those at the institution with the lowest Expected Family Contributions, or EFCs as determined by the FAFSA) and those who are also Federal Pell Grant recipients. Students are awarded based on the availability of funds at the time financial aid awards are packaged.

Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher (TEACH) Education Grant

Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher (TEACH) Education Grant is designed for students who intend to teach full time in a high-need field at a public or private elementary or secondary school that serves students from low-income families. Students who receive the TEACH Grant must fulfill a service obligation.  If a student does not complete the service obligation, all TEACH Grant funds received will be converted to a Direct Unsubsidized Loan. 

Apply for a TEACH Education Grant

  1. The student must complete the FAFSA.
  2. The student must complete TEACH Entrance Counseling.
  3. The student must complete the TEACH Grant Agreement to Serve.
