Global Campus meets the needs of working adults, including military, government agency civilians, teachers and future business leaders who want the opportunities that come with earning a degree. Because adult learners often have different educational needs than traditional students, courses are provided at times and in formats designed around people who work and have other commitments for their time.

We are pleased to have your student as part of the Troy community. One of our goals is to assist parents in helping their students with the financial aid process, so that it is simple and clear. With this goal in mind, we have created this Web page just for parents to share some general financial aid information with you that may be helpful.
FERPA, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, protects the privacy of student educational records. Any information provided is kept in strict confidence. Please rest assured that we are very aware of concerns for safekeeping of your information. We want you to know that we strictly adhere to FERPA. Although it does limit what we can share with you about your student, it protects your student.
Look out for all of those marketing pieces that will be flooding your mailbox pertaining to funding your student’s education. Troy University has a “school initiated” application process, which means you must apply directly with our office to receive a federal student loan, rather than through outside organizations. Our Federal Direct Stafford Loans will be awarded automatically if your student is eligible and PLUS Loan forms are available on our Web site at http://troy.edu/financialaid/plus.html. At any given time, there may be two years of forms on our Web site (current year forms and new year forms). Current year forms, of course, apply to the current academic year (Fall through Summer). New year forms apply to an upcoming academic year. It is important to make sure the correct forms are completed for the correct academic years.
Beware of scams. You should not pay to process financial aid applications, and we recommend that you do not pay for scholarship searches. You should not pay an agency or business that “guarantees” you will be eligible for financial aid and you should not pay to have your FAFSA completed for you. The first F in FAFSA is FREE.
Approximately 70% of Troy University students receive some type of financial assistance, including grants, loans, scholarships and work study. The process of applying and receiving aid can be intimidating for some, but it does not have to be. As a guide to assist you, we are providing some basic steps and a time line below.
We have created an Application Checklist, which we recommend you review and share with your student. It is located at Step 1 — How to Apply or by going to the links at the bottom of this page.
You may want to remind your student that scholarships are awarded by several sources at Troy University - they can have their questions answered more accurately by contacting the office that awarded the scholarship or provided the contract.
Financial aid disbursements to student accounts begin after “Add/Drop” (the period of time when a student may adjust their class schedule) has ended, usually 7 to 10 days into the semester or term.
