Financial Aid Information
The primary purpose of student financial aid at Arkansas Tech University is to provide assistance to students who, without aid, would be unable to attend college. All awards are administered by the ATU Office of Financial Aid in accordance with state and federal regulations and the university's equal educational opportunity policy. Trained professionals in the ATU Office of Financial Aid are available weekdays from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. to assist students in their search for financial resources to pay for college. Representatives of the ATU Office of Financial Aid are regular guests at high school parent nights, where they offer presentations about making college affordable. In addition, ATU financial aid analysts assist high school students in the completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) during many of their in-school visits. Another way ATU connects students with financial resources is by offering on-campus employment opportunities, including college work study positions.
