Financial Aid Office
The Financial Aid Handbook is a great resource for everyone.
Four out of five Pennsylvania College of Technology students receive some form of financial aid – worth millions of dollars – every year.
There is money available to help most students meet the cost of college. Find out if you are eligible by starting the process now!
To be considered, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year that you are enrolled as a student. The information you provide on the FAFSA will determine how much you are eligible to receive in grants and loans.
Please note: the FAFSA and other aid applications are FREE. Penn College strongly recommends against using any service that charges a fee to complete the FAFSA or a scholarship application. If you need any assistance, contact the Penn College Financial Aid Office.

We honor students’ confidentiality. Students must provide their full name and Penn College Student ID Number when asking questions about their specific financial aid information. Parents whose information is on their dependent student’s FAFSA are welcome to ask questions about their son or daughter’s aid, as long as they provide their student’s full name and Student ID Number. In some cases, we may ask for additional identifying information, such as addresses, etc. We will not disclose confidential information to spouses, siblings, other relatives, etc., unless a Release of Information Form is completed by a student while in our office.
