Policies and Procedures:
In order to determine eligibility for Federal Financial Aid Assistance Programs, it is recommended that the student file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.gov. The Federal Processor will determine a studentís eligibility based on a standard formula established by Congress. The student is also required to complete the Collegeís Admission Application and complete the admissions process.
Approximately three to five business days, after completing the FAFSA online, the student will receive a response from the Federal Central Processor. If the student receives a paper Student Aid Report (SAR), the student is not required to submit the SAR to the Financial Aid Office for evaluation providing the school code 005734 is listed on the SAR. However, the student is responsible for following up with the Financial Aid office.
If the SAR has been selected for verification, the student will be asked to provide documents to check the accuracy of the information. The Financial Aid staff will assist the student with correction (s), if required.
All transfer students applying for Federal assistance must request an academic transcript from each postsecondary institution previously attended to be sent to the Office of Admissions and Records at the College. The studentís financial aid file will not be complete until all required documents are received at the College.
Each term, Federal Financial Aid credit balance checks are disbursed fourteen (14) days after the first day of classes. Federal Financial Aid disbursements are mailed to the home addresses of the recipients that are on file in the Admissions and Records Office.
Trenholm State Technical College operates on a three-term financial aid year with the Fall Semester constituting the first term of the financial aid year, the second term is the Spring Semester and the last is the Summer Term. Recipients must re-apply for Federal financial assistance on or after January 1, for the upcoming Fall Semester.
