Financial Aid recipients are notified by mail from Student Services regarding award status at least 21 days prior to the beginning of classes for the fall semester. The formal award letter will identify specific financial aid amounts and pertinent donor information. All aid recipients are required to draft a personal "Thank You" letter addressed to the fund donor or donor family. Students and donors alike have greatly benefited from the fellowship and joy generated through this unique element of the GGBTS Financial Aid Program.

"Thank You" letters must be submitted to the office of Institutional Advancement in accordance with all instructions included in the award letter.  Failure to submit this letter within the stated time period will disqualify students for scholarship consideration. The Business Office credits scholarship awards toward tuition and makes all necessary adjustments to the student's account. Scholarship recipients, however, must still make arrangements to pay any/all remaining charges in order to maintain clear accounts.

In most cases, Financial Aid Program recipients who register as full-time students and then withdraw to part-time hours, or withdraw from active enrollment, must relinquish all scholarship funds and bear responsibility for full payment of all tuition charges.
