"The Financial Aid Office at Albany Technical College is here to assist in making sure you complete the appropriate forms to apply for any form of financial aid, whether it is the HOPE Grant and Scholarship, PELL Grant, or student loan. Timing is extremely important when applying for financial aid.

Remember that application for aid must be completed each academic year.

Financial aid recipients must maintain satisfactory academic progress to remain eligible to receive student financial aid funds. Students must meet both areas of Grade Point Average and completion rate each term and overall to stay qualified.

The Financial Aid office at Albany Technical College is here to help you with all your financial aid needs, and we are located in the Kirkland Administration Building".

The type of aid we offer is in the form of:

  • Scholarships
  • Grants
  • Work Program
  • Other Aid Available on Campus
  • Student Loans

Applying for Financial Aid

All applicants should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). It is recommended that students file their FAFSA at least four to six weeks prior to the date the funds will be needed. The application is available online at

Reapplying for Aid
All students must reapply for financial aid each year. The priority funding deadline to renew your financial aid is July 1st for the fall semester. All financial aid awards are reviewed annually based on:

  • the timely completion of the financial aid application process
  • continued demonstrated financial need
  • maintenance of Satisfactory Academic Progress
  • availability of resources

If you completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) when applying for financial aid for the previous academic year, you should receive an email from the U.S. Department of Education with instructions about how to once again submit the application electronically. Failure to reapply for financial aid each year will result in a loss of financial aid for that year and possibly subsequent years.
