In times of financial hardship, ask yourself some key questions:
If this is a new hardship, or a new level of hardship, the best place to start is likely with the UGA Financial Aid Office.
Significant changes in financial circumstances, either for you or your family, may help you qualify for a reconsideration of your financial package at UGA. A financial aid officer can review your situation and alert you to any available options.
Please understand available options may include new or additional loan opportunities. Loans are an invaluable resource for many UGA students and families. Simply not wishing to take on educational debt does not constitute a financial hardship.
If your consultation with Financial Aid does not fully relieve your financial hardship, there are other campus and community resources to consider.
