Student Access Loan
The Student Access Loan (SAL) Program is administered by the Georgia Student Finance Authority (GSFA) and may be funded by state general funds, proceeds from the Georgia Lottery for Education and public and/or private donations. The purpose of the program is to assist with the affordability of a college education, encourage timely persistence to the achievement of postsecondary credentials, and to incentivize loan recipients to work in public service. The loans or portions of the loans are forgivable for recipients who work in certain occupations.
In order to receive the Student Access Loans, students must:
- Be considered Georgia residents and U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens.
- Complete a valid Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to apply for this program.
- Maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) in accordance with the SAP Policy at your college or university.
- Have first applied for and exhausted all other student financial aid programs including federal and state student loans, scholarships, and grant programs.
- Be randomly selected to participate in the program. (Note: Selection does not guarantee approval and applicants may or may not be selected each application year.)
- Meet all eligibility requirements.
