Financial Aid Information
Highlights 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. Faculty and staff in Leadership Tech, a professional development program for employees at Arkansas Tech University, have partnered with the ATU Office of Financial Aid to develop a new student resource called "Tech $ense." Tech $ense is a one-stop shop for financial literacy. Located at, the website helps students plan for college, pay for college and make sound financial decisions. Information about federal financial aid, scholarships, student loans and helpful hints about how to read a paycheck, what goes into credit scores and how to avoid identity theft is all available through Tech $ense. In addition, 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 officers 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.
