FINANCIAL AID


My name is Ophelia Price and I Financial Aid specialist here at Albany Technical College. My department is here to assist you in making sure you complete the appropriate forms to apply for any form of financial aid, whether it is the HOPE Grant and Scholarship, PELL Grant, or student loan. Timing is of the essence when applying for financial aid and we are here to assist you in any way we can. Remember that application for aid must be completed each academic year. Financial aid recipients must maintain satisfactory academic progress to remain eligible to receive student financial aid funds. Students must meet both areas of GPA and completion rate each term and overall to stay qualified. We are here to help you with all your financial needs, so come and see us in the Kirkland Administration Building.

You can access Financial Aid information on Albany Technical College's Web page under the Students menu. There you will find very helpful information, including basic requirements, how to apply, financial aid facts, scholarships, satisfactory academic progress, selected for verification and financial aid forms. The mission of the Office of Financial Aid is to help remove financial barriers to assist students in meeting the cost of attendance at Albany Technical College.


Applying for Financial Aid

All applicants should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). It is recommended that students file their FAFSA at least four to six weeks prior to the date the funds will be needed. The application is available online at www.FAFSA.ed.gov.


Reapplying for Aid
All students must reapply for financial aid each year. The priority funding deadline to renew your financial aid is July 1st for the fall semester. All financial aid awards are reviewed annually based on:

  • the timely completion of the financial aid application process
  • continued demonstrated financial need 
  • maintenance of Satisfactory Academic Progress 
  • availability of resources

If you completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) when applying for financial aid for the previous academic year, you should receive an email from the U.S. Department of Education with instructions about how to once again submit the application electronically. Failure to reapply for financial aid each year will result in a loss of financial aid for that year and possibly subsequent years.

 

The type of aid we offer is in the form of:

  • Scholarships
  • Grants
  • Work Program
  • Other Aid Available on Campus
  • Student Loans
