The Financial Aid program at Galveston College provides financial assistance to those students, who without such aid, would not be able to pursue a higher education. The primary responsibility for financing an education rests with the student and their family, and Galveston College is aware that assistance beyond the family's resources sometimes becomes necessary. In cases where financial need for eligible students is documented, Galveston College will assist, as far as possible, using all available local, state, and federal funds. Galveston College Title IV Federal School Code: 004972
