Financial Assistance

The following types of financial assistance are available at Autry Technology Center:

The Federal Pell Grant program is a Title IV federally funded program which provides funds for educational expenses to eligible undergraduate adult students enrolled in financial aid approved, post-secondary education career programs. Pell Grant awards are dependent on the following:

  • Student’s expected family contribution (EFC) as determined by the U.S. Department of Education using a standard formula to evaluate financial information (including income, assets, and family size)
  • School’s cost of attendance
  • Student’s enrollment status (full-time or part-time)
  • Student’s actual number of clock hours attended by the student.

All adult and graduating high school students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA by applying online at www.fafsa.gov. The Autry school code is 013530.

Seven Easy Steps to the FAFSA

*Autry does not participate in any student loan programs.

What’s changing for 2017–18?

 

Starting with the 2017–18 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), these changes will be in effect:

 

• You will be able to submit your FAFSA earlier. You can file your 2017–18 FAFSA as early as Oct. 1, 2016, rather than beginning on Jan. 1, 2017. The earlier submission date will be a permanent change, enabling you to complete and submit a FAFSA as early as October 1 every year.

 

• You will use earlier income and tax information. Beginning with the 2017–18 FAFSA, students will be required to report income and tax information from an earlier tax year. For example, on the 2017–18 FAFSA, you—and your parent(s), as appropriate—will report your 2015 income and tax information, rather than your 2016 income and tax information.

 

Reference the 2017-2018 FAFSA Update Handout for Parents & Students for more information.
