FLAGLER TECHNICAL COLLEGE FINANCIAL AID RESOURCE GUIDE

This guide provides several tuition assistance resources and is not a conclusive list.  Please note some financial aid options have restrictions.  It is recommended you speak with an FTC Financial Aid counselor to gain a better understanding of your options.

FAFSA

What is FAFSA? FAFSA stands for “Free Application for Federal Student Aid”. Not only is it important to complete the FAFSA for the purposes of applying for Federal Aid for “Pell Approved” programs, but it can also be a factor in scholarship applications as well and a requirement for several funding sources.

How do I apply for Federal Aid through FAFSA?

Step 1: Get Your FSA ID Here. NOTE: If you are a dependent student or under the age of 25, your parents/guardians will also need a FSA ID.

Step 2: Complete Your FAFSA Online. FTC’s Federal School Code is 041583. You may also enter additional school codes during your application. NOTE: If you filed tax returns, use the “Link to IRS” tab to directly download your tax information into your application.

If you do not have a computer, you may use one in our Media Center or your local library. If you need assistance with your online application or FSA ID, please call (800) 433-3243.


Step 3: Schedule a Financial Aid Appointment: After meeting with our Registrar to complete the registration process, contact FTC’s Financial Aid Specialist at (386) 447-4345 ext-1199 to begin processing your FAFSA. The Financial Specialist will review your application and advise you of verification requirements or any other information pertaining to your FAFSA. Request your tax return transcripts by calling (800) 908-9946 or go online. Only accepted students will be awarded and provided financial aid documents. DEADLINE FOR COMPLETION OF THE FINANCIAL AID PROCESS IS 2 WEEKS PRIOR TO THE START OF THE PROGRAM IN WHICH YOU ARE ENROLLED.
