Step 4: Submit Your FAFSA

In order to be eligible for financial aid, you must have a FAFSA on file. This is something you must do every year as a college student, but it is particularly important to ensure you get as much aid as you can in your freshman year. To automatically send us your FAFSA information, add Tennessee Tech to your FAFSA application using our official code: 003523.

If you have questions about your financial aid, email

Complete the FAFSA


Step 5: Accept Your Scholarships

Being awarded a scholarship does not mean you automatically receive it; you must either accept or decline the award before the deadline, given on the award letter or email, in order to secure it. Make sure you check your Tech email often for notices of awards. You can check your award status and accept scholarships by going to TechExpress and selecting the "ScholrWeb" quickLink.
