Award amounts to eligible students are based on the total Go Grant appropriation and could vary with each academic year.
Award Amounts for the 2012-2013 Academic Year:
** Residency: Louisiana resident as of the day the FAFSA is filed and Louisiana is the student's true and fixed domicile as reported on the FAFSA. If student's state of residence on the FAFSA is not reported as LA, but a dependent student claims that a non-custodial parent is a Louisiana resident, or that parents are Louisiana residents living out of state, LOSFA will determine residency based on the completion, by the parents, of a residency affidavit.
Residency for displaced students: Special provisions have been made to assist students affected by the natural disasters of August and September 2005. See complete details in GO Grant rules and/or the GO Grant residency affidavit for students with a Louisiana Distance Diploma using the link at the bottom of this page.
*** Students should check with the financial aid office at the school they plan to attend to determine award distribution, e.g., first come, first served; priority to incoming students; or another method in line with the school's priority order.

Transfer Degree Guarantee (TDG): A CLEAR PATH TO SUCCESS
The Transfer Degree Guarantee helps students to easily transfer from a 2-year or community college to a 4-year university in the state of Louisiana. It provides guidance and saves time and money.
TDG ensures that a community college student can transfer to a Louisiana 4-year public university and immediately enroll with Junior-level status in most majors.
