Georgia Student Access Loan (SAL) Program
The Georgia Student Finance Authority (GSFA) is now accepting applications for the new Student Access Loan (SAL) Program. The SAL program is a low interest rate (1%) loan program designed as a last resort funding resource for undergraduate college students who have unmet financial need. Students must be Georgia residents and U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens who have graduated from an eligible Georgia high school with a 2.5 minimum GPA. Applicants must have completed a FAFSA for the current academic year and be enrolled at least half-time in order to apply for the SAL program, and must be able to demonstrate that they and their parents have applied for all available educational loans, except private loans; this includes all Direct Loans for Students and Parents. Since funds are limited, GSFA will randomly select recipients from the applicant pool.
