Applying for aid
After you submit your FAFSA and are admitted to S&T, you will receive a financial aid package, which includes qualifying S&T scholarships, federal and state funds, and loan options.
You are not required to accept your entire aid package. You may accept some, all, or a combination of offered funds. We are here to help, so contact us if you would like to discuss your options or financial aid offer letter.
Follow these steps
When you apply for admission to S&T, you automatically apply for some merit-based scholarships. Merit based awards funds are limited, so it is best to apply early. Once you are admitted, a financial aid package will be delivered that details all aid that you qualify for.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a form that should be submitted annually by you or your parents (if you are a dependent student) to determine your eligibility for need-based student financial aid.
To qualify for need-based aid, you must submit your FAFSA each year you plan to enroll at S&T.
In addition to the aid you may qualify for when you are admitted to S&T, there are many other scholarships and options for aid available.
- S&T Scholarship Database is an easy way to find and apply for additional university, regional and national scholarships.
- Other Scholarships: We offer several scholarships for exceptional students, transfer students and students from diverse backgrounds.
- Local and private scholarships: Check with your high school counselor to learn about other scholarship opportunities.
- Grants: There are several federal and state grants that you may be elgibile for.
Summer Aid Application
If a student is planning on attending summer courses, they can apply for summer aid. S&T Student Financial Assistance automatically will review all students who are enrolled at least half-time for the summer semester, and will award students who have Federal Pell Grant and Direct Student Loan eligibility for the summer semester. If a student wishes to be considered for additional aid, they can complete the summer aid application.
