How to View Your Financial Aid
 


College can be expensive, but there are funds available to help with college costs, including tuition, books, and living expenses. We will walk you through the process of receiving financial aid, starting with filling out the application and ending with how to manage your financial aid over the course of your college career.

Financial aid is available at GCC for students who qualify, through Pell Grants, privately funded
Scholarships, and VA Education benefits. Applications for any of these types of financial assistance can be obtained by visiting the Financial Aid Office in Room 2116, Student Services & Administration Building, or by calling 735-5543.  It is the mission of the Financial Aid Office to assist all students who qualify for financial aid so that they receive the maximum financial assistance available in order to make their college education more affordable. For those who do not qualify for financial assistance, GCC has two payment plan options for the Fall or Spring semester.


 

Types of Financial Aid
 

Pell Grant:  Federal Pell Grants usually are awarded only to undergraduate students who display exceptional financial need and have not earned a bachelor's, graduate, or professional degree.  A Federal Pell Grant, unlike a loan, does not have to be repaid, except under certain circumstances.

 

Federal Work-Study:  Federal Work-Study provides part-time jobs for undergraduate and graduate students with financial needs, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. The program encourages community service work and student-to-student assistance.


Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG):  is a federal assistance grant reserved for college students with the greatest need for financial aid to attend school


Scholarships: The Financial Aid Office assists students to access scholarships from private organizations and island communities. 


Loans:  Money that is borrowed and must be repaid-with interest. Federal loans are applied for through FAFSA.  Guam Community College does not currently administer Federal student loans.  Private loans may also be sought from financial institutions.
