How do I apply for federal aid?
The first step in the financial aid process is to create an FSA User ID. The FSA ID – a username and password – has replaced the Federal Student Aid PIN and must be used to log in the certain U.S. Department websites. Your FSA IS confirms your identity when you access your financial aid information and electronically sign Federal Student Aid documents. If you do not already have an FSA ID, you can create one when logging in to fafsa.gov. Once your FSA ID is created you are ready to complete the Free Application For Student Aid, via fafsa.gov. In order for MediaTech Institute to receive and review your eligibility you must add our school code to the FAFSA application.
Remember at any time during the process should you need assistance you may contact a Financial Aid Advisor for guidance.
