Free Application for Federal Student Aid

To find out what you qualify for, fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at
MTIC School Code is 039763

Federal student aid is money that comes from the federal government; the U.S. Department of Education. This money is available for those who qualify, and covers educational related expenses such as tuition, books, supplies, and lab fees.

When filling out the online application it will give you the option to use the IRS Tax Retrieval Tool. Doing this will insure the information entered is correct and matches the IRS. This will help to alleviate future problems because of possible user error.

MTIC participates in the following federal aid programs:

  • Federal Pell Grant – A federal program where money is given to students with the highest amount of financial need which is determined by the information provided on the FAFSA. Pell Grants do not have to be repaid.
  • Subsidized Direct Loan – A subsidized loan is awarded on the basis of financial need, which is determined by the information provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). For those who qualify for a subsidized loan, the federal government pays interest on the loan (subsidizes the loan) until repayment begins and during authorized periods of deferment thereafter. Repayment begins six months after the student graduates or withdraws from the program.
  • Unsubsidized Direct Loan – A loan for which the student is responsible for paying the interest that accrues on the loan from the date of disbursement until the loan is paid in full, regardless of enrollment or deferment status. Repayment begins six months after the student graduates or withdraws from the program.
  • Direct PLUS Loan – The Direct PLUS loan helps parents and guardians with good credit borrow up to the cost of education for undergraduate children. Direct PLUS loans help supplement your other sources of financial aid, giving you the flexibility to cover 100% of your student’s college expenses even if the FAFSA process has denied your student other aid. The Direct PLUS loan offers a 7.9% fixed rate, 10-25 year repayment period, and payments typically begin within 60 days after final disbursement with the option to defer payments while your student is enrolled at least half-time.
