Awards On Athena

 An admitted student can access his or her financial aid Award on Athena once the award is created.  Depending on the time of the year, students who have completed the appropriate Award Year's Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Process and/or the Georgia Scholarship/Grant Application (GSFAPPS) will be able to view either an Estimated Award or an Official Award on Athena.  When the UGA Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) creates or revises an Estimated Award or Official Award, the student is e-mailed instructions to log in and review his or her Award on Athena.
