Financial Aid for Degree Programs

How does financial aid work?

Financial aid awards may be viewed on your myForsythTech Self-Service portal.  Details regarding your award are emailed to your Forsyth Tech email account and can also be found in the in the Guide to Financial Aid.

Grants and scholarships are already accepted and require no further action on the student’s part.  Loans are offered awards and do require further actions steps if you choose to accept student loans.  Instructions regarding student loans are provided through your Forsyth Tech email account and may also be viewed through the myForysthTech portal.

Financial aid recipients (those awarded  grants and scholarships) do not need to make a tuition payment prior to the payment deadlines.  Tuition will be deducted from your student financial aid automatically, as long as you meet all eligibility requirements for the aid.  Students that only receive student loans must meet all student loan requirements in order for classes to be held through the tuition payment deadlines.  For details regarding eligibility requirements, please review this Guide to Financial Aid.

If your financial aid award is not enough to cover your tuition in full, you will receive a bill during the semester for the remaining amount.  If your financial aid is enough to cover tuition and textbooks, you may begin charging required textbooks and supplies several days prior to the first day of class.  Simply take a photo id and a copy of your class schedule to our bookstore for assistance with bookstore charges, or you may even be able to order textbooks online by following instructions on their webpage.   Either way, our bookstore is staffed to help you through this process.

Your financial aid will first be applied to tuition, bookstore, and any other applicable institutional charges.  If any financial aid funds remain after those charges are paid, the remaining balance is disbursed to you through a company called BankMobile.  Full details about disbursement policies and dates can be viewed by clicking here and reviewing this Guide to Financial Aid.
