Applying for Financial Aid

How to Apply


Submit your application to State Tech and watch for information about your State Tech student email address. This email account will be how all of your Financial Aid information is communicated.

The first step in applying for financial aid is completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Completing your FAFSA is free and is the application for Federal and State financial aid programs including A+ and federal student loans. The FAFSA is completed online at www.fafsa.gov. More tips and helpful information about completing the FAFSA can be found on Federal Student Aid’s website – Filling Out the FAFSA Form.

State Tech offers several scholarships through our Foundation Office. Information on those as well as some external scholarship opportunities can be found here. Check with your local school district or other scholarship databases for additional opportunities. Start looking early so you don’t miss deadlines!

Shortly after State Tech receives your FAFSA and you are admitted into a degree program your financial aid offer will be created and you will be notified via your State Tech student email account. To learn about how to understand your Financial Aid Award offer, visit the Understanding Your Financial Aid Award Offer website.

After reviewing your Financial Aid Offer, accept or decline your Federal Student Loans through your Financial Aid Portal. Next, visit the “Missing Items & Messages” page of the portal to see if any documents still need to be provided and submit them as soon as possible.
