Apply for Aid

There are four steps to apply for aid at YHC.

1. APPLY TO YHC

Complete the YHC Admission Application. Scholarship and financial aid awards are made only after a student has been officially accepted. All freshmen admitted to Young Harris College are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships.

2. Complete FAFSA

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Our school code is 001604. The FAFSA determines eligibility for need-based grants, work-study and need-based loans. Filing the FAFSA is an annual process and must be renewed every year. We recommend that students apply early because most need-based funding is limited. The FAFSA application is available after October 1 of each year and will use the previous year’s income tax information. For example, the 2017-2018 FAFSA will be available October 1, 2016, and will require the 2015 tax information. The student and at least one parent will need an FSA User ID and Password to complete the FAFSA online. You can create your FSA User ID and Password online at https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm. We recommend you keep your FSA User ID and Password information in a safe place for future reference. All forms and supporting documentation (if requested) should be completed by May 1 in order to receive priority consideration for Federal, State and Institutional funds.

3. Apply for GTEG, Zell Miller and HOPE scholarship (GEORGIA RESIDENTS ONLY)

Georgia residents who do not file a FAFSA must complete GSFAPP. The Zell Miller Scholarship pays $4,220 per academic year ($2,110 per semester), HOPE Scholarship pays $3,820 per academic year ($1,910 per semester), and GTEG pays $700 per academic year ($350 per semester). Eligible students taking at least six credit hours qualify for part-time Zell Miller Scholarship ($1,055 per semester) or HOPE Scholarship ($954 per semester). Log in to your account at gafutures.org to check your HOPE GPA.
