Important Information Regarding Recalculation of Awards for Students Who Withdraw or Stop Attending
Classes Dropped During the 3 day - 100% Drop Period:
Students who drop all classes before the 100% drop period ends will be responsible for repaying all Pell funds used at the bookstore.
Pell Grant Recalculation Procedure for Students Who Withdraw or Stop Attending all Classes
Title IV funds (Pell Grant) are awarded to a student under the assumption that the student will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded. When a student withdraws, the student may no longer be eligible for the full amount of the Title IV funds that the student was originally scheduled to receive. This means that students who withdraw or stop attending classes must have their award re-calculated and may owe back funds used at the NGTC Bookstore.

Scholarships are administered through a partnership between North Georgia Technical College and the North Georgia Technical College Foundation. Scholarship applications are available online, in the Foundation Office, and in the Financial Aid Office.
Grants are the most attractive forms of financial aid because money given in the form of a grant does not have to be paid back after graduation.
Loans should be used as a last resort to pay for educational expenses. Although it is not NGTC’s policy to encourage students to incur additional debt for their college education unless all other sources of aid have been exhausted, we have included a section containing additional information should you need it.
Veterans’ Benefits will be available both to veterans and spouses as well as children of disabled or deceased veterans. More information is available from area Veterans' Administration Offices.

A good option for funding is work-study. This federal program provides you with part-time employment on campus to give you work experience while also helping you meet your financial needs. It's a great way to earn money for college while getting involved in your campus community.
