The Financial Aid Office is committed to providing high-quality service to all students, their families, and the community. As part of that commitment, the office strives to provide information that is accurate, easy to understand and enables students to make decisions regarding educational funding.
Financial aid will be disbursed to Oregon Tech student accounts beginning on January 4, 2024 if all Requirements for Aid Year on Web for Student have been completed by the student and processed by the Financial Aid Office. Once funds have been posted to student accounts, refunds will be processed by the Business Office. Any refunded amount will be forwarded for processing with BankMobile Disbursements, a technology solution, powered by BMTX, Inc. through your selected refund preference.
Students need to be in at least six (6) credits to receive financial aid, with some types of aid requiring full time enrollment of 12 or more credits.
2024-25 FAFSA Changes
The FAFSA Simplification Act was passed by Congress in 2020 and represents a significant overhaul of the processes and systems used to award federal student aid. This includes the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, the need analysis that determines federal aid eligibility, changes in terminology, and many policies and procedures for schools that participate in federal student aid programs.
Historically, the FAFSA has been available beginning October 1st each year. However, because of significant changes to the application and the rebuild of the FAFSA processing system, the Department of Education has indicated that students will be able to complete the 2024-25 FAFSA by December 31st and schools will begin receiving FAFSA data by January 31st. This means we won't be able to notify students that we've received their FAFSA until February. Updates on an exact date will be posted here when announced.
