Overawards & Overpayments

See Overaward in Important terms for definition.

When an overaward situation arises, the UGA Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) is required to review the student’s financial aid Award and determine if any of the Federal Student Aid (FSA) or other need based aid must be reduced in order to eliminate the overaward.

If an overaward becomes an overpayment, the student is no longer eligible for Federal Student Aid (FSA) or State of Georgia Financial Aid until the student has repaid the overpaid funds.
