Get Help Paying for College

To complete an electronic Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) simply go to https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa. You can complete your FAFSA anytime after October 1. Manhattan Tech strongly recommends that students, and their parents if required, use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool if given the option when filling out the FAFSA.

The FAFSA will determine your eligibility for all Title IV Aid (Federal Pell Grant, Federal SEOG Grant, Federal Stafford Student Loans and Federal Work Study). Not all aid is based on need. Consequently, everyone can be eligible for some type of loan.

FAFSA Deadlines: October 1 is the first day a student can submit a FAFSA application for the following academic year.

Manhattan Tech's priority deadline is July 1st. However, you should complete your FAFSA as early as possible.  In order to receive a book voucher for the fall semester, you must have all your financial aid paperwork finalized. Text book vouchers allow you to charge your textbooks purchased through eCampus against your expected financial aid.
