The Five-Minute FAFSA
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the basic federal form that determines your eligibility for all need-based aid. The same form is used for all students: graduate and undergraduate, traditional and nontraditional. As the name implies, there is no charge to file the form. Remember to indicate Indiana Tech as a college choice by using our OE code number, 001805. You can file the FAFSA anytime but it must reach the federal processor by March 10 in order to apply for Indiana state aid.
Step 2: Reply to requests
If we need additional information or verification of anything, we'll ask. When we do, please reply as promptly as possible.
If you are a student in the College of Professional Studies program, you will need to submit a payment options form before registering for your first class. For more information on the payment options that are available, please visit our billing and payment section.
