About Student Finance
Arizona Technical Training Institute has an entire team here to help you find ways to make your education more affordable. The student Finance Department at each Arizona Technical Training Institute has the resources and the expertise to help guide you step-by-step through the financial aid and Grants process.
Student loans, and grants are available to those who qualify.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a form you need to fill out if you are seeking financial assistance from the federal government to attend college. Each year, over 13 million students who file the FAFSA get more than $120 billion in grants, work-study, and low-interest loans from the U.S. Department of education.

AZTTI provides a list of grant and financial aid possibilities as a resource only. Each resource has its own criteria and process for approving you to receive funding and approving AZTTI as a school and or program of study. These resources are provided as information only and should not be relied upon to pay for your course at AZTTI or to represent the entire list of possibilities for you to gain funding for the specific course you are seeking to be admitted into. Your own initiative will be the key ingredient in getting your education funded. Our past students have received funding from their employer, religious organizations, community and social outreach programs, family/friends, as well as a wide variety of other sources. Remember, you can do this!

Does AZTTI accept FAFSA?
AZTTI has several different options for our programs; however, FAFSA is not one of them.
FAFSA stands for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. This is also known as Title IV Funding. The funding gets its name from Title IV of the U.S. Higher Education Act. This act enables federal funding programs to be used for individuals requiring aid to help pay for higher education.
Higher Education is classified as Post-Secondary education, or education received after High School Graduation. These funds were approved to help leverage the cost of Universities and Colleges which can be anywhere from $30k-$100K+.
Since AZTTI is a vocational trainer, our programs are shorter in duration and less expensive in comparison to completing an Associates's, Bachelors's, or higher level of education. Thus, Title IV funding is not intended to fund such programs. They are better utilized for the levels previously mentioned.
