If you complete a Degrees+ program with a GPA of 2.5 or higher, GGU offers guaranteed acceptance into its bachelor’s programs!)

We know you’re busy.

That’s why our courses are designed to fit around your schedule with all course materials available to you 24/7, and weeklong exam windows that give you the flexibility to take them when it makes sense for you.

Do you plan to apply for US Federal Financial Aid?

Amazing!

We’re so glad you applied for FAFSA already.

GGU’s Degrees+ tuition is so low that financial aid may cover the entire cost for students that qualify. Each year, 42% of students receive an average of $5,179 in federal grants—aid that exceeds Degrees+ annual tuition of $4,470 and does not need to be repaid like student loans.

About US Federal Financial Aid

We strongly encourage students to apply to see if you qualify for grants and scholarships that could reduce their out-of-pocket tuition costs.

Do you want our support gathering your official college transcripts?

To complete your application, we'll need official college transcripts from all institutions attended. In line with our commitment to removing barriers for higher ed, Outlier can assist with ordering official domestic college transcripts, including JST and CCAF (up to five) on your behalf.

While ordering your own official transcripts may vary from institution to institution, agreeing to order your own official transcripts means that you will have to contact your previous institutions and request that they send copies of your transcripts to transcripts@outlier.org. All transcripts must be sent in English. Only after receiving all transcripts can GGU be able to make an admissions decision.

Even if you will be ordering your own transcripts, you are still required to disclose all of the previous higher education institutions that you have attended below
