Office of Financial Aid
The primary purpose of Student Financial Aid at Arkansas Tech University-Ozark Campus is to provide assistance to students who, without aid, would be unable to attend college. All awards are administered by the Financial Aid Office in accordance with state and federal regulations and the Arkansas Tech University's equal educational opportunity policy.
Application forms for all types of federal aid may be obtained from the Office of Financial Aid or online at www.fafsa.gov.
We are located in Student Services Conference Center, and our hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
New Changes to Student Loans
Student loans will no longer be held for summer. All loans for the year will be offered up front. This means that it is the students responsibility to make sure they have money set aside for summer classes. In addition, all subsidized loans must be received before a student can receive an unsubsidized loan. As always, students can choose to accept none or only part of their loan money in order to ensure summer money.
New Changes in Student Loan Regulations
Beginning July 1, 2013, the new limit for subsidized student loans is 150% of their published program length. For example: for an associates degree, the program length istwo years. This means that students will only be able to receive subsidized student loans forthree years. Keep in mind that if you are attending only part time this does not lengthen the amount of time that you can receive subsidized loans. You will still be limited to the three years even if you have not completed your associate degree.
