FINANCIAL AID

The financial services Department of MediaTech Institute works to assist students and families in obtaining the financial assistance needed to pursue their education and careers goals. Our Financial Aid Advisors are here to help students and parents understand the financial aid programs, assist in completing federal aid applications and assess educational expenses. Once the federal aid application process is complete a Financial Aid Advisor will evaluate eligibility and review the information with the students and their families. Financial Aid packages are unique for each student. Each package depends on their specific needs, eligibility and the decisions made during the process. Federal financial aid may not cover the entire cost of the programs. Financial Aid is available for those who qualify. 

THE FOLLOWING FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS ARE CURRENCY AVAILABLE TO THOSE WHO QUALIFY

G.I. BILL & TUITION ASSISTANCE
Reference: Vets.gov/education |  GIbill.va.gov | 877-823-2378

As a military-friendly institution, MediaTech Institute accepts many forms of veterans’ assistance including, but not limited to:

  • Montgomery GI Bill
  • Post-9/11 GI Bill
  • Chapter 31 Benefits
  • Chapter 35 Benefits
  • Chapter 33/1606
  • Military Spouse Tuition Assistance

Benefit coverage varies from full to partial tuition assistance. Assistance may be available for books, fees and housing allowances.

Students eligible for VA benefits should contact the Financial Services Department before registration. For GI Bill students (Chapter 30, 33, 35, and 1606), all transcripts from any other previous college or institution attended will be required and must be submitted before the school will send certification of enrollment to the VA. The Veterans Administration determines eligibility for benefits, and will make payments to students directly upon certification. If you are eligible for VA benefits, you will register and pay tuition in the same manner as non-veteran students. Once your paperwork has been processed through the VA, you must certify your enrollment monthly through the VA website at http://www.gibill.va.gov or by calling 877-823-2378.

How to Apply: To apply for benefits through the VA, visit: Vets.gov/education/

Once the student’s application is processed, they can also log back in and print a Certificate of Eligibility at this site. Students must verify monthly enrollment with the VA in order to receive their monthly payment. Typically, students can either call the VA or verify online.
