Dear Students: Your Fall term bill is based on tuition rates currently in effect. The General Assembly establishes tuition rates in the State budget or related legislation. As of July 1, a budget for FY 2015-16 has not been enacted into law. Therefore, a tuition increase may be implemented later this year. To date, the General Assembly has discussed a tuition increase of up to $4 per credit hour.  If the General Assembly enacts a tuition increase that becomes effective prior to January 1, 2016, you will receive a supplemental bill for the balance owed for Fall term. We apologize for any inconvenience.

The Forsyth Tech Checklist to Success In Obtaining Financial Aid

  1. Apply for admission to Forsyth Tech. You may apply online. This is a separate process from applying for financial aid; however, financial aid cannot be disbursed until you are approved for admission. For additional information on admission, please visit the Admissions Office page.
  2. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid(FAFSA) as soon as possible after January 1 of the current year you intend to enroll in college. For additional information on applying, please visit our Application Process and Priority Processing Dates page.
  3. Promptly respond to all requests for information. Once the Office of Student Financial Services receives a copy of your FAFSA from the U.S. Department of Education, a checklist letter will be sent to the address on file with Forsyth Tech’s Records Office, requesting documents needed to complete your file. Once all documents are received, your financial aid file will be reviewed for a possible award.
  4. If it is determined that you are eligible for aid, you will receive a financial aid award letter along with several other important documents. Carefully read all materials.
  5. Follow-up with your Financial Aid Technician if you have any questions.
