In May 2014, Federal Student Aid (FSA) launched a new feature on its StudentAid.gov website, which allows aid recipients to access their federal student aid history directly on that site. Students, parents, and borrowers can now log in to Student Aid.gov to view their federal student loan and grant information from the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS®)

This is the second step of a multi-phase project to develop a single point of entry for students accessing federal student aid information, applying for federal aid, repaying student loans, and navigating the college decision-making process. The site including this new feature is also completely accessible on tablets and smartphones.

Through Student Aid.gov, students can now

  • view their federal student aid history, including loan detail, grant detail, and overpayment detail
  • get their loan servicer’s contact information
  • find out how much Pell Grant eligibility they have left and
  • download their federal student aid history into a text file using the MyData Download function.

The NSLDS Student Access site will continue to be available and student aid recipients should continue to visit NSLDS.ed.gov exclusively to:

  • update their address
  • submit an enrollment change
  • complete TEACH exit counseling and
  • provide an organization authorization to their account

GRANTS

STUDENT LOANS

Pickens Tech does not currently participate in any student loan programs (Federal Stafford Loan, Direct Loan, Perkins, etc.). Students holding previous loans from other schools are eligible for deferment of loans in good standing. Deferment forms will be completed by the records office and sent to previous schools or the loan holder. For further information on loan deferments, contact the Financial Aid Office

MILITARY PERSONNEL

Active duty military personnel and their dependents upon moving to Colorado on a permanent-change-of-station (PCS) basis are eligible for resident tuition rates. Before registering at Pickens Tech, they should contact the nearest Military Education Office in order to complete and have the tuition classification certification form approved by the Education Officer. The form is to be presented at the Registration Office at the time they register for a class.

VETERANS

The Financial Aid Office does all certifications for veterans seeking to use their educational benefits at Pickens Tech. Not all programs are eligible for veterans benefits and prospective students should contact the office for information on specific programs or classes. A veteran is ALWAYS responsible for his or her tuition bill at the time of registration. An application or certificate in progress does not exempt students from meeting financial obligations when they are due. Veterans may check their education benefits at va.org, click on Benefits & Education Training.

PLEASE NOTE
Pickens Technical College reserves the right to cancel, discontinue, reschedule or combine classes and to change instructors. Classes may be canceled if fewer than the required minimum number of students register.
