Special Circumstance Appeal

The federal laws governing financial aid allow the Financial Aid Office at Capitol Technology University to recalculate financial need in cases of special circumstances not taken into consideration by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  Families who suffer significant losses of income due to temporary or long term loss of employment or the death of a wage earner, or families who incur significant medical expenses not covered by insurance may appeal for a review of the financial aid decision. In these unusual situations, Capitol will use “current year” income rather than the “prior-prior year” income to determine a change in financial aid eligibility.  All requests must be made in writing and must include the pertinent documentation requested. You can locate the appeal form under Financial Aid Forms or click here: Special Circumstance Appeal Form

 

 

2020-2021 FAFSA is available for filing!

The 2020-2021 FAFSA is available for filing for the Fall 2020, Spring 2021 and Summer 2021 semesters.

You should file the FAFSA as early as possible. To increase your chances of receiving state aid, in addition to federal aid, it is important to know the deadline for your state of residence. In addition to varying deadlines, some states award aid on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline to file your FAFSA to receive aid from Maryland Higher Education Commissions is March 1st. For the District of Columbia the FAFSA must be completed by May 1, 2020. For DCTAG, complete the DC OneApp and submit supporting documents by May 31, 2020.

The 2020–21 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form is available to students and parents to complete through the myStudentAid mobile app and the fafsa.gov website.

To file a FAFSA online you will need to visit: https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa . Be sure to use Capitol Technology University’s school code: 001436 to ensure that we receive your application.

To complete the 2020–21 FAFSA using the myStudentAid app visit: https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/about/announcements/fafsa-mobile-options for more information.

You can create or obtain your FSA ID here: https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa/filling-out/fsaid

Filing your FAFSA is easier if you have gathered everything you need before you get started. If you are a dependent student you will need the following information for yourself, as well as your parents. If you are married you will need this information for your spouse also.

  • Social Security Number (or Alien Registration Number if you are not a US citizen)
  • Student’s driver’s license (if applicable)
  • 2018 Federal tax returns
  • Bank statements, records of investments, and records of untaxed income
  • An FSA ID to electronically sign the form (students and parents will each need their own FSA ID)

The IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) can make obtaining accurate tax information easier.  However, there are some stipulations on who is eligible to use the DRT, so it’s still a good idea to have the information list above on hand.

Changes to Maryland Higher Education Commission Programs to students

Beginning July 1, 2018, if you received State financial aid (Guaranteed Access Grant, Educational Assistance Grant or the Campus Based Educational Assistance Grant) for at least two years beginning August 31, 2015 and thereafter, you will be required to meet certain Credit Completion Requirements to renew State financial aid awards for subsequent years.

Renewal Credit Completion Requirements:

You must earn your required credits during the fall, winter minimester, spring, and summer terms. To remain eligible for your maximum renewal amount for 2018-2019, you must earn at least 30 credits this year. If you earn fewer than 24 credits this year, your award will not be renewed. If you earn 24 to 29 credits, your renewal award will be prorated based on the following formula:

 

                         Standard Renewal Amount x (Completed Credits / 30) = Revised Renewal Amount

                                                       Example Adjustment for a $3,000 Grant

SALLIE MAE LAUNCHES FREE SCHOLARSHIP SEARCH TOOL FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS

 Company’s Graduate School Scholarship Search Home to More than 850,000 Scholarships Exclusively for Graduate Students, Worth More than $1 Billion

 Sallie Mae, the nation’s saving, planning, and paying for college company, today launched the new go-to destination for graduate school scholarships. Sallie Mae’s free Graduate School Scholarship Search is now available to current and prospective graduate school and professional students and is home to more than 850,000 graduate school scholarships worth more than $1 billion.

Getting started is easy; students register free of charge, fill out a profile that can be updated at any time, and start searching. The tool responds with matches that identify relevant scholarships and their award amounts, application requirements, and deadlines. In addition, Graduate School Scholarship Search automatically will send updates when it identifies new matches.

Available scholarships and fellowships run the gamut of graduate school disciplines, including business, law, medical, health care and nursing, engineering, and education, and range from a few thousand to tens of thousands of dollars. Those who register for Sallie Mae’s Graduate School Scholarship Search are also automatically registered for the Sallie Mae $1,000 Sweepstakes, which awards $1,000 each month to a winner selected at random. For official sweepstakes rules, visit Sallie Mae $1,000 Sweepstakes. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited.

The Graduate School Scholarship Search tool is especially relevant given recent research from Sallie Mae and Ipsos on how students are paying for graduate school. According to “How America Pays for Graduate School,” two-thirds of grad students (64 percent) believe an advanced degree is the new minimum standard level of education for any professional occupation, and nearly all (95 percent) say an advanced degree is necessary to enter, advance, accelerate, or remain competitive in their chosen career.

“Today’s students see graduate school as a critical component to a successful career, and although most have a plan to pay for it, many are unaware of the availability of scholarships and where to find them,” said Martha Holler, senior vice president, Sallie Mae. “Our free and easy-to-use Graduate School Scholarship Search is the one-stop shop for graduate school scholarships that simplifies and automates the search for free money for grad school.”

 To register for and access Sallie Mae’s Graduate School Scholarship Search and for additional information about saving, planning, and paying for graduate school, visit SallieMae.com.

Program Changes for the Howard P. Rawlings Educational Assistance (EA) Grant and Howard P. Rawlings Guaranteed Access (GA) Grant grant programs

Please be advised that beginning with the 2018-19 academic year there will be MAJOR changes to the RENEWAL process for the Educational Assistance (EA) Grant and Guaranteed Access (GA) Grant programs due to the enactment of the College Affordability Act of 2016.

The changes will consist of recipients of the EA or GA awards must successfully complete at least 30 credits by the end of the second academic year of enrollment and each academic year thereafter. This means that students who are eligible for either the EA or GA grant must complete at least 30 credits per academic year, beginning in their sophomore year and thereafter, in order to receive full eligibility.

While these provisions will not become effective until the 2018-2019 academic year, it is imperative that students plan accordingly now as the number of credits they will earn in the 2017-2018 year may affect their award eligibility for the 2018-2019 award year.  

Please note that for more information regarding the program changes for the EA and GA grant, students may visit: http://mhec.maryland.gov/preparing/Pages/FinancialAid/EEAProgramChanges.aspx or email: osfamail.mhec@maryland.gov

CIA Undergraduate Scholarship Program

The Undergraduate Scholarship Program is a financial needs based initiative that offers undergraduate students an unmatched experience in a diverse and inclusive environment. Undergraduate students, serving as scholarship recipients with the CIA, attend an accredited college/university on a full-time basis and work during summer breaks at the Agency. While working at the CIA, you will be exposed to real intelligence challenges while performing meaningful work that relates to your college major. An IT major, for example, might be given increasingly complex projects involving sophisticated computer systems. An engineering major might help produce a piece of state-of-the-art equipment. A finance major could be involved in developing and analyzing budgets for a worldwide operation, while a foreign language major might be instrumental in translating documents for US policymakers. An international relations major might brief a senior policymaker and, as a final example, a human resources major could have the opportunity to develop and implement personnel policies and procedures.

If selected as a scholarship recipient, you will receive a wide array of benefits, including:

  • Tuition assistance up to $18,000 per calendar year for tuition, mandatory fees and books
  • Daily allowance for meals and incidentals during summer tours
  • Reimbursement for transportation costs between school and Washington, DC
  • Annual salary
  • Health insurance
  • Life insurance
  • Federal retirement plans
  • Paid time off, as well as sick and holiday leave

Because the CIA invests in scholarship recipients, accepting an offer means continued employment with the Agency for a specified timeframe. You are required to work at the Agency after college graduation for a period equal to 1.5 times the length of the college sponsorship you received from CIA. Students who leave earlier are required to reimburse the US government for their tuition. All positions require relocation to the Washington, DC Metropolitan area during summer work tours.

Markforged Distinguished Women Engineers Grant

From robotics to material science, some of the most exciting, world-changing innovation and economic opportunity today is happening at the cutting edge of engineering fields.

Unfortunately, while breakthroughs in technology ought to serve everyone equally, the teams and individuals driving innovation in engineering fields are not typically reflective of our population. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that women will hold just 20% of computing jobs by 2025, a gap that has gotten worse in the last 30 years.

In robotics and 3D printing, where our Markforged team is at the forefront of the digital manufacturing revolution, the lack of gender diversity is just as prevalent.

We see this as not just an opportunity problem, but also as an impact problem. Technology itself suffers from the lack of diversity, as evidenced by problems like AI programs exhibiting racial and gender biases.  Diverse teams are more innovative and show better financial results than those that aren’t, and it is in all of our best interests to ensure equality of opportunity and strong diversity in engineering fields.  As one part of this, the Markforged team has come together to create this grant for women in engineering fields at leading technical universities. The grant will be awarded to a woman studying any engineering field at a top-tier technical undergraduate or graduate university program in the US.

Additionally, applicants to this grant will be considered for current and future internships and job opportunities at Markforged as part of an innovative, industry-leading team that is transforming manufacturing.

Scholarship Application Essay:

Please share a project you’re working on or have worked on that demonstrates your ability as an engineer -  500-1000 words.

Application Deadline:  November 18, 2020

2019-2020 FAFSA is available to complete!

The 2019-2020 FAFSA became available for filing on after October 1, 2018. Completing your FAFSA early will help to ensure that you receive all of the aid that you are eligible for. Filing early also helps to ensure that you don’t miss FAFSA deadlines for state aid. You can find state FAFSA deadlines at https://fafsa.ed.gov/deadlines.htm.

To file a FAFSA you will need to visit:  https://fafsa.ed.gov . Be sure to use Capitol Technology University’s school code: 001436 to ensure that we receive your application.

You can create or obtain your FSA ID here: https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa/filling-out/fsaid

Filing your FAFSA is easier if you have gathered everything you need before you get started. If you are a dependent student you will need the following information for yourself, as well as your parents. If you are married you will need this information for your spouse also.

  • Social Security Number (or Alien Registration Number if you are not a US citizen)
  • Student’s driver’s license (if applicable)
  • 2016 Federal tax returns
  • Bank statements, records of investments, and records of untaxed income
  • An FSA ID to electronically sign the form (students and parents will each need their own FSA ID)

The IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) can make obtaining accurate tax information easier. The tool is expected to be reinstated for the 2019-2020 FAFSA. However, there are some stipulations on who is eligible to use the DRT, so it’s still a good idea to have the information list above on hand.
