Smart Moves for Fall Semester
Take Five! Stay On Track to Finish and Maximize Your Financial Aid

When you register for fall semester at Gwinnett Tech – take five! Five courses to stay on track to finish your program and to make the most of your financial aid.

There are lots of important reasons to take a full course load. Read on!

Take Five and Reap the Benefits!

  • To receive your full Pell award, you must take a full course load of at least 12 hours. A full course load can mean a difference of up to $1,388 in your Pell award, depending upon your expected family contribution (EFC).

  • If you don't use the total amount you were awarded for the federal Pell Grant, the money can't be rolled over to another aid year. It's in your best interest to enroll for full course loads for fall and spring semesters.

  • Your Pell Grant funds can be used to help pay for books, fees and the percentage of tuition not  covered by the HOPE Program.

  • Taking five courses on semesters is the same as taking three courses on quarters.

  • You should plan to take five classes to stay on track to complete your program. If you're accustomed to quarters, know that you won't be in class more hours per week on semsters, but you will have longer to finish your course work – 15 weeks rather than 10 on quarters.

Register for fall classes now! Log on to www.gtc-web.org. If you have questions or need assistance, call 678-226-6616.

Registration for current students: June 19 – July 31
Registration for new students: June 26 – July 31
Late registration: August 6 - 14
Classes begin: August 20

How many hours is a fulltime course load under semesters?
Twelve hours are required to be considered fulltime.

What's the benefit of taking a full course load?
Taking a full course load keeps you on track to complete your program – one of the best ways to manage college costs. Plus, to receive your full Pell Grant award, you have to be a fulltime student. Remember, these are funds you can use to cover books and the percentage of tuition no longer covered by the HOPE Program.

What's the difference in the fulltime Pell award payout as compared to part-time?
A full course load of 12 hours can mean a difference of up to $1,388 in your Pell award, depending upon your expected family contribution (EFC). For example, based on an EFC* of zero, a full load of 12 hours or more for Fall Semester provides a Pell award of $2,775. For 11 hours or less, your expected award would be approximately $1,380.

[*EFC (Estimated Family Contribution) is determined by Federal Processors. GTC is not responsible for determining these amounts. The EFC that you are given will determine the amount of a Pell award, based further on the number of hours you are taking.]

What will the HOPE Program cover?
The HOPE Program does not pay for books or fees. Tuition will be paid at $60.75 per credit hour. But, the Pell Grant and other loans can help you pay these costs. The schedule below provides a detailed breakdown.
