Financing Your Academic Goals


The 2024-25 FAFSA is now available. Due to the changes from the Simplification Act, the federal government will start to process the FAFSA's in March and schools will begin receiving student's FAFSA information beginning April 2024.

Promise Scholarship students: The FAFSA must be submitted by April 1, 2024. Save your confirmation email from Federal Student Aid or take a screenshot of your FAFSA homepage, which has the date your FAFSA was submitted. If there is a delay receiving your FAFSA information you can use either one of these as your proof of submission.

An education at Great Basin College is one of the most potentially rewarding investments you may make in your lifetime, and it can be more affordable than you imagine.

GBC has many resources to assist you in funding your studies. The most desirable forms of financial aid for students are scholarships, and federal grants, which do not need to be repaid. Another option is a federal student loan, which will need to be repaid with interest. Federal Parent Loans are another financial avenue. Veterans may be entitled to additional benefits.

If you receive financial aid at GBC, you will need to maintain Satisfactory Progress during the course of your studies. Be sure to familiarize yourself with these academic standards.

In addition, GBC's Career Center can assist you in finding a regular job in the community and provides an online list of jobs currently open for GBC students.
