Ozark Campus 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 University's equal educational opportunity policy.
Application forms for all types of Federal aid may be obtained from the Financial Aid Office or on-line at www.fafsa.ed.gov. You are welcome to drop by or call--we will be happy to discuss your financial aid with you and answer any questions you may have.
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was passed by Congress to help provide economic relief from the national emergency created by COVID-19. One portion of the CARES Act established the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) which provides the opportunity for emergency financial aid grants to help cover a student's expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus.
CARES/HEERF Act grants will be administered by Arkansas Tech, and awarded to:
- Current undergraduate and graduate students,
- Who have a FAFSA on file,
- Are eligible to receive Title IV (federal loans, grants, and work-study) funds, and
- Are not enrolled in an exclusively online program.
The funding each school receives is limited, so the grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until funding is depleted.
