Applying for financial aid involves a series of simple tasks that must be completed. These tasks can be completed online, which makes the process easier and quicker than ever.
IMPORTANT: Please check your Tennessee Tech student email account regularly. If we need any additional information to process your FAFSA, we'll send the request to this email account. You can also check your Eagle Online account to find out what additional requirements you might need to complete.
What do you need to do?
- Fill out the online university scholarship application before December 15th of the year before you plan to attend. This date can change from year to year so please check the Tennessee Tech Scholarship office web site (Example: For the 2021-2022 school year- for new freshman and continuing students the scholarship application opened on August 1, 2020 and closed on December 15th 2020. For transfer and graduate students opened and August 1, 2020 and will close on May 1, 2021).
- Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You'll need to do this every year you plan on being enrolled. You can get a link to the FAFSA site and more information on our Complete a FAFSA page. Remember to put Tennessee Tech's School Code on your FAFSA—our code is 003523.
- It normally takes about 4 weeks to process your FAFSA. You'll receive e-mail confirmation once the government makes your information available to us. Once we receive the FAFSA results, we will contact you to let you know (to your Tennessee Tech student email account) what additional information we need to complete. Many of the forms we request can be downloaded from our forms page, and e-mailed to us at email@example.com. Please put your Tennessee Tech Id # (T number) on all correspondence.
