What federal financial aid is available at Pioneer Tech?
Pioneer Technology Center is approved to offer the following federal Title IV financial aid to those who qualify:
- Federal Pell Grant
- Oklahoma Tuition Aid Grant (OTAG)
- Oklahoma's Promise
Note: Pioneer Technology Center does NOT participate in any Federal Loan programs.
Students who are enrolled as full-time or half time students in accredited* Career Majors, which are at least 600 clock hours in length, may apply for Title IV aid. (*A Career Major must be accredited for Title IV aid by the Oklahoma Board of Career and Technology Education and approved by the Department of Ed.) To be eligible for Title IV federal financial aid, you must have a high school diploma, GED or equivalent, or provide an academic transcript to prove you were home schooled.
AT&D Classes are not approved for Title IV financial assistance
1st STEP - apply for an FSA ID at studentaid.gov (If you have never applied for FAFSA on-line before.) Keep your ID for future use. If you are required to include your parents’ income, one of your parents will also need an FSA ID, as that represents their electronic signature.
2nd STEP- fill out the federal aid application (FAFSA) on the internet - www.studentaid.gov
3rd STEP- use IRS Data Retrieval Tool to import your tax information from the IRS
If you have NO access to a computer, inquire at your local library or contact the Financial Aid office to make arrangements to use a computer on PTC’s campus.
If you are not able to provide parent information & you feel you have a special or unusual circumstance, contact the Financial Aid Office to discuss your circumstance.
THE FINANCIAL AID CODE FOR PTC IS: 011206
Approximately 3 weeks after the FAFSA is submitted on-line, you will receive an email with your Student Aid Report (SAR). If you entered Pioneer Technology Center’s financial aid code on your FAFSA, the school will also receive a copy of the report. You may list up to 10 schools to receive your FAFSA information.
After you are enrolled in an eligible course, you will receive notification from PTC stating the amounts of financial aid for which you are eligible or a letter stating that you are not eligible and the reason why.
If you are paying tuition/fees out of your federal Pell grant, tuition for each semester will be taken out of each disbursement. If you wish to purchase books/supplies or have other costs taken out of your Pell grant, they must be picked up 3 weeks before your 1st disbursement. If there is money left over after tuition, books and fees have been paid, the money will be disbursed to the student to be used for school-related expenses (such as gasoline to get back and forth to school and living expenses).
If an agency will be paying your tuition, fees, etc., it is your responsibility to bring a letter from that agency to the financial aid office.
Application for OTAG is automatic with the FAFSA if you indicate that you have resided in Oklahoma for more than a year. Not everyone that applies will receive OTAG.
