Scholarships, Financial Aid & Discounts

Financial Aid

Students accepted into Golden Gate University's Degrees+ program are eligible to apply for federal financial aid. Read more HERE.

If you're taking one of our individual courses, however, we are unable to accept financial aid funds (such as 529 plans or GI Bill funds) as a direct form of payment. We recommend that students reach out to the funding entity for their financial aid and inquire whether they can be reimbursed for Outlier tuition expenses and what will be required to do so.

Outlier is able to provide students with a copy of their invoice and a course syllabus if they need to submit an expense for reimbursement.

We believe quality education should be affordable and accessible for all who want it. That’s why we’re offering five $1,000 scholarships to help curious and determined students start college for even less. Scholarship funds will be applied directly toward tuition, divided evenly over each term of their Degrees+ program.

How to Apply: Applying for the Trailblazer scholarship is built into the Degrees+ application. No extra forms needed. Simply answer a short essay question about how you embody curiosity and determination in your life, and you’ll be entered.

Current Degrees+ students and previous applicants can apply for the scholarship here. Scholarship recipients will be notified via email by March 31, 2023.
