The first step to apply for state and federal grants and/or student loans is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is completed at fafsa.gov. Be sure to list State Tech’ school code (004711). Students and parents will have to create an FSA ID at https://fsaid.ed.gov/ to login and sign the FAFSA. It is important to keep your username and password for future reference. For any questions about federal student loans and Financial Aid visit https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/ or contact the State Tech Financial Aid office.
Financial Aid eligibility is determined based on a student’s FAFSA results, grade level, and cost of attendance as determined by the Financial Aid Office. Once you are admitted into a program and have a completed FAFSA application on file, the Financial Aid Office will determine your eligibility and create a Financial Aid Award Offer for you. This information will be available through your EagleOnline account. You will need to compare your financial aid to your charges to determine where you stand financially.
