Submitting scholarship checks / documents

Scholarship checks and other documents should be mailed to:

Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA)
University of Georgia
104 Caldwell Hall
Athens, GA 30602

Please remember to include the student’s name and UGA student ID number (81xxxxxxx). Make all scholarship checks payable to the University of Georgia. If a check is made co-payable to UGA and the student, the student will be required to sign the check which may delay the application of the funds to the student’s account.

Email Attachments

OSFA cannot accept email attachments but UGA students can send documents to our office through UGA’s secure SendFiles service. For more information on how to do that click here.

UGA students can also contact our office for permission to upload documents to our secure portal.
