College Financing Plan

The College Financing Plan, formerly known as the Financial Aid Shopping Sheet, is a standardized form developed by the U.S. Department of Education for prospective students to compare the estimated costs of colleges and the types and amounts of aid available. The costs listed are subject to change and aid is contingent upon the student meeting all eligibility requirements. The form below contains an example of an estimated 2019-2020 Award for an entering freshmen with eligibility for the Zell Miller Scholarship and maximum Federal Pell Grant.  

If you have submitted a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and have completed the application process, you may log into Athena for a personalized College Financing Plan (click on the Federal Shopping Sheet link under the Financial Aid menu).  If you have not yet applied for federal aid, you may wish to use the Net Price Calculator to estimate the cost of attending UGA.
