Here are some resources to help you find financial aid to help cover the cost of your education.
Pittsburgh Technical College participates in state and federal grant and loan programs. Awards vary from family to family and are based on annual earnings, age, state of residency, and circumstances that might be unique to you.
The only way to know whether you qualify to receive financial aid is to meet with a Financial Aid Planner who works daily with the rules, regulations and exceptions. Regulations change from year to year, so don't depend on someone else's experience to guide your decision.
Do research. Sit down with an expert. Ask questions. Get the latest information to find out how financial aid applies to you and your family.
Explore all of your options. We are glad to help. If you want to start investigating, here are some resources:
