Welcome to the FTCC Financial Aid Office!

Your financial aid journey starts by completing the online FAFSA application. Explore the information and videos to learn more about the financial aid opportunities available. Contact our office with any questions or concerns.

The Financial Aid Office is in constant contact with students via their FTCC student email.  As soon as the data from the students’ Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is received from the Department of Education, an email from FTCC is sent to inform students that their information has been received and the next steps to take.  (The confirmation email students receive from the Department of Education confirms the FAFSA has been submitted.  The email from the Department of Education is not a confirmation that aid is packaged at FTCC.)

Real-time financial aid data, such as missing documents, Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) status, offer information, Pell lifetime eligibility, loan history and amounts, etc. is available in Self-Service.  Students are encouraged to check their email and Self-Service accounts regularly. Stop by the Financial Aid Lab in the Tony Rand Student Center, Room 131, for assistance.

What Do I Need to Do to Receive Financial Aid?

Financial aid is offered for the academic year (fall, spring, and summer).  The Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) has to be submitted for each academic year. 

To ensure aid is available to charge tuition, fees, and books, the FAFSA and any required paperwork should be submitted by the FTCC priority deadlines listed below:

If you miss a financial aid priority deadline, you are still encouraged to submit the FAFSA.  There may be less funds available from state aid and scholarships. Students who submit their FAFSA after the priority deadline should make other payment arrangements to pay for their tuition, fees and books if aid is not offered before the registration payment is due. 

To apply for financial aid:

  • Setup Your FSA ID
    • 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.
  • Complete the Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA)
    • FTCC’s School Code is 007640. Use the Help and Hints section on the FAFSA website for guidance in completing the application.

*Financial aid disbursements will vary depending on enrollment status, such as when financial aid is packaged, course section start date, enrollment level, etc.  Students are responsible for dropping and withdrawing from classes in a timely manner to avoid financial aid over-payments.

  • Students can select direct deposit as a refund preference.

  • Loans will be disbursed in three installments fall and spring terms and two installments during the summer session.
  • Students will not be eligible to receive a refund on every scheduled disbursement date.
  • Disbursement dates will vary based on the financial aid package, enrollment status, and the course section census dates of classes.
  • Disbursements are scheduled to occur after the course section census dates for classes that have started and after the applicable students have been counted as enrolled by the Registrar’s Office.


Student Responsibilities

Students 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.

Student Eligibility Information

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.

Important Policies

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.

Eligible Programs

Many of FTCC’s degrees and programs are eligible for federal financial aid. See a current list of all eligible programs.

Consumer Information

Fayetteville Technical Community College (FTCC) regularly evaluates student achievement/success using an annual assessment of Basic Skills Student Progress, GED Diploma Passing Rate, Developmental Student Success Rate in College-Level English Courses, Developmental Student Success Rate in College-Level Math Courses, First Year Progression, Curriculum Student Completion, Licensure and Certification Passing Rates, and College Transfer Performance.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 is a federal law that protects the confidential nature of students’ educational records. (Educational records are records such as academic records, attendance records, disciplinary records, and financial records.) FERPA requires Fayetteville Technical Community College to protect students’ educational records from disclosure, even to their parents, except in some limited circumstances defined by federal law. However, students may authorize the release of their own educational records by completing the Consent for Release of Student Information Eform, located in their Financial Aid Eforms in WebAdvisor.
