Financial Aid

Complete a FAFSA

Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) is the first step toward getting federal aid for college, career school, or graduate school.

To apply for federal student aid, you need to complete the FAFSA® or Free Application for Federal Student Aid every year.

We have provided several recommended videos created by the Department of Education that give a great overview of the FAFSA.

Beware of Scams

Students and parents need to be aware of financial aid scams that 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.
