Financial Aid:

If you are interested in a FAYETTE INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY program, you may also be interested in financial aid.

Financial aid sources are available to defray the costs of tuition, textbooks, and supplies.

The Pell Grant is the most widely used source of financial aid. In addition to the Pell Grant, you may be eligible for assistance through the Workforce Investment Act.

There are also a number of other agencies or sources that provide tuition assistance and/or other types of support while you are enrolled in school at FAYETTE INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY. Some of those agencies are:

Department of Health and Human Services
Department of Vocational Rehabilitation
Veterans Administration
HEAPS (Higher Education Adult Part-time Student)

Since each of these awards is in the form of a grant, you will not have to repay any of the money upon graduation.

Alternative Loan are available at www.wellsfargo.com or simpletuition.com
