Steps to Receive Financial Aid
The FSA ID is used to log in to Federal Student Aid’s online systems, to fill out a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), and to sign legal documents electronically. It replaces the Federal Student Aid PIN.
FTCC’s School Code is 007640. Use the Help and Hints section on the FAFSA site for guidance in completing the application.
Use this form to request to have your Official Transcripts sent to FTCC. If you have a GED, provide the Admissions Office with your official GED test results. Veterans are encouraged to have official transcript(s) from military schools sent to FTCC, if applicable.
Your award notification and all official correspondence from the Financial Aid office will be directed to these sites.
If applying for loans, log in to StudentLoans.gov and complete Entrance Counseling and a Master Promissory Note.
Once your high school transcript has been turned in, check your WebAdvisor account to confirm your program of study.
Review our informative Financial Aid Videos for answers to all of your financial aid questions.
You have the responsibility to:
- complete and submit applications and promissory notes on time to the appropriate location;
- return all additional documentation, verification, corrections and/or new information requested by the Financial Aid Office;
- provide accurate information; (In most instances, misrepresenting information on financial aid application forms is a violation of law and may be considered a criminal offense that could result in indictment under the U.S. Criminal Codes.)
- read and keep copies of all signed forms.
Certain grants, scholarships and loans are need based. The Department of Education will determine your need based on information that you put on your FAFSA. This amount is called your Estimated Family Contribution (EFC). FTCC will use this formula to determine need.
Those individuals who elect to participate in the William D. Ford Subsidized and Unsubsidized loan program should be aware that loans awarded are disbursed each semester in three installments. The amount due each student is affected by the number of credit hours taken plus the start date of the courses taken.
