Beginning Freshmen
  1. Apply for admission to Louisiana Tech University.
    You must be accepted for admission before the Louisiana Tech Division of Student Financial Aid can determine your financial aid package.  More...

  2. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
    You must list Louisiana Tech University on your FAFSA so we can receive the results. Be sure to list the correct school code 002008. As a freshman entering college for the first time, you should indicate on your FAFSA that you are seeking an associate's or bachelor's degree. A change in federal rules for 2012-2013 requires a different verification process.  IMPORTANT: To avoid delays in processing your federal financial aid for 2014-2015 read More...

  3. Complete the Louisiana Tech Data Form.
    This form collects information that is not available on the FAFSA and allows Louisiana Tech to create a more accurate award package. Louisiana Tech cannot proceed with processing a financial aid package until either the Data Form (Online) or the Data Form (Fill and Print) is received.

  4. Review your Student Aid Report (SAR).
    If your SAR is rejected or requires correction or you are selected for verification, you should read the instructions carefully and take appropriate action.  More...

  5. Missing something?
    When the Financial Aid Office receives your SAR, you will receive a "missing information" letter or email outlining further information the office may require to complete your application. Log in to the "MY AID" website and click "Missing Info" to check your document status. Please provide the information or take the directed action to correct the problem as quickly as possible to avoid delays in awarding your financial aid. Downloadable Forms and Documents are available to assist you with any "missing information".  More...
    NOTE: Submit all College Transcripts(if applicable) to Louisiana Tech University. The Financial Aid Office will need to review all college transcripts for grades and course completion in order to determine whether the student meets our Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements. This includes classes taken as dual enrollment credit.

  6. Respond to the award letter.
    If you do not have a Louisiana Tech email address, you will receive a paper financial aid award letter outlining the aid Louisiana Tech can offer you. If you have a Louisiana Tech email address, notice will be sent by email when you have an award letter. We cannot complete the financial aid process until you return the letter or accept your awards online. Please return the signed award letter within three weeks of the date of the letter so we know that you intend to accept the funds offered or complete and sign your award letter electronically by going online to the "MY AID" website.
