Be sure to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) using Greenville University’s school code: 001684. When you’ve been accepted to an online program and we receive a copy of your FAFSA, we will confirm the amount of awarded financial aid.

Accepted students can access the Student Account Center at any time to view account activity, make payments, enroll in a payment plan, and more.
