Our Financial Aid goal is to assist students in securing a quality education without missing an opportunity because of their financial situation.   We meet our goal through two major objectives:  supplement the efforts of our students and their parents in meeting educational costs and provide financial aid to students who would be unable to attend this institution without such assistance.

Athens State University can assist qualified students with grants, loans, and scholarships from Federal, State, Institutional and other funding sources.  Athens State University, the Athens State University Foundation and the University’s Alumni Association offer more than 160 scholarships awarded annually. Information on other scholarship sources is also available.

Please take this opportunity to review our financial aid information presented online.
