Q - Why does my FAFSA application look different this year?

The government is encouraging everyone to apply online, so you may be looking at a paper Free Application for Federal Student Aid ( FAFSA) on the Web Worksheet - not an actual paper application for the FAFSA. There are many benefits when you apply online. Our office receives the information more quickly, there is no postage you must pay. Applying online is quick and easy.

Q - Do I pay to file my FAFSA?

**SCAM ALERT**
Students and parents need to be aware of financial aid scams that generally take place throughout the year. A family should be extremely wary of any company that charges money in order to process a financial aid application for you. Remember that the FAFSA ( Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is a FREE application. Neither the US Department of Education nor Tennessee Technological University works with any company or organization that would require a family to pay to apply for federal financial aid.
