Financial Aid

Federal, State, Institutional and Private

Financial aid is any grant, scholarship, part-time employment opportunity, or student loan that helps you pay for your educationally related expenses (e.g. tuition, fees, books). Financial aid may be provided by federal, state, institutional, or private agencies. 

The Financial Aid office at Gulf Coast State College serves students by providing information and access to financial aid programs. We are committed to high-quality customer service and continually strive to improve the accurate processing of financial aid to students in a fair, consistent, and efficient manner.

For specific questions, please email FA@GULFCOAST.EDU from your official Gulf Coast address or visit the financial aid office in person with your student ID (A#).  If you have a general question then you may call (850) 872-3845.  Please note though that we do not have a phone queue so we often miss phone calls during peak periods since we can only handle one call at a time.  Emailing or visiting us in person are therefore more effective methods for articulating your questions, comments, or concerns.  Our fax number is (850) 873-3523 and our hours of operation are listed at https://www.gulfcoast.edu/hours-operation.html.
