Apply for Financial Aid

General Information 

Brenau University offers financial aid in the form of Federal Grants and Direct Loans, as well as State Grants and Scholarships for undergraduate students.

Graduate Students are able to receive Federal Loans.

Any student who would like to apply for federal and state aid should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at

Brenau University has a rolling admissions policy – there are no annual deadlines or specific priority dates. We recommended that Financial Aid requests should be submitted 2 months prior to your anticipated start date. Visit our Financial Aid pages for more information about how to get started.

New FAFSA forms are available on Oct. 1 of each calendar year for the academic year that begins the following August. For example: beginning Oct. 1, 2022, the 2023-24 FAFSA is available to file.

Keep in mind new students must also complete all Brenau University admissions requirements and be fully accepted for admission before financial aid can be processed.

A student who is allowed conditional enrollment is not eligible for financial aid for that term.
