  • Financial aid programs - Capitol Technology University offers many programs to help students pay for their education.

Prepare early for the 2018-2019 School Year!

 

The 2018-2019 FAFSA will be available for filing on and after October 1, 2017. 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 2018-2019 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.

Upcoming 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

Federal Student Aid ID/Pin Replacement

IMMEDIATE ATTENTION REQUIRED!!

The new Federal Student Aid ID number- a username and password - has replaced the Federal Student Aid PIN and must be used to log in to certain U.S. Department of Education websites. Your FSA ID confirms your identity when you access your financial aid information and electronically sign Federal Student Aid documents.

You can create an FSA ID when logging in to fafsa.gov, the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) at www.nslds.ed.gov, and StudentAid.gov. You can use your FSA ID to sign a FAFSA right away. Once the Social Security Administration verifies your information in one to three days, or if you have linked your PIN to your FSA ID, you will be able to use your FSA ID to access the websites listed above.

Users who arrive at impacted websites will be directed to a link to register for their new FSA ID. The registration process should take less than 7 minutes. Only the owner of the FSA ID should create his or her account.

2017-2018 Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

The 2017-2018 Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is still available to complete!

Are you attending college between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018? If so, you will need to complete the 2017-2018 FAFSA.

You need to fill out a FAFSA every school year.

Students have been able to file a 2017–18 FAFSA since Oct. 1, 2016, rather than beginning on Jan. 1, 2017. The earlier submission date is a permanent change, enabling students to complete and submit a FAFSA as early as Oct. 1 every year.

Beginning with the 2017–18 FAFSA, students are required to report income information from an earlier tax year. For example, on the 2017–18 FAFSA, students (and parents, as appropriate) must report their 2015 income information, rather than their 2016 income information.  

We strongly encourage you to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to update your 2016-17 FAFSA income information. The IRS Data Retrieval Tool is available through the FAFSA website (www.fafsa.ed.gov) and saves time.  It will reduce the chances of questions from the Financial Aid Office regarding conflicting information, prevent mistakes, and if you use the IRS Date Retrieval Tool and do not change any of the retrieved information on the FAFSA, you won’t need to provide IRS Tax Transcripts to the Financial Aid Office.

Financial Aid Notice: Prior-Prior Year Income/ Early FAFSA

There will be several upcoming changes to the financial aid application process for next year (2017-2018):  Prior-Prior Year Income and Early FAFSA.

On September 13, 2015 President Obama signed an executive order that will allow families to complete the 2017-2018 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) using income information from the 2015 federal tax return, the same income information that you and your parents used when filing the 2016-2017 FAFSA.  This change from prior year income to prior-prior year income when completing the FASFA will allow students and parents to report final, accurate income information on the FAFSA as most families will have already completed their 2015 taxes.  As a result, the 2017-18 FAFSA will be available as early as October 1, 2016, compared to previous practice of January 1st.

With this change in mind and that the 2015 federal tax return filing deadline has passed, it is time to update your 2016-2017 FAFSA information with final 2015 income data.  In order to avoid any discrepancies between 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 academic years, we strongly encourage you to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to update your 2016-17 FAFSA income information.  If you used the IRS Data Retrieval Tool when completing your 2016-17 FAFSA no further action is required.  But if not, the IRS Data Retrieval Tool is available through the FAFSA website (www.fafsa.ed.gov) and saves time in the following ways:

  • No need to locate your tax records;
  • No need to worry about making mistakes entering your tax return information on the FAFSA;
  • If you use the IRS Date Retrieval Tool and do not change any of the retrieved information on the FAFSA, you won’t need to provide IRS Tax Transcripts to the Financial Aid Office; and,
  • If you use the IRS Date Retrieval Tool for both 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 academic years, it will reduce the chances of questions from the Financial Aid Office regarding conflicting information.

We understand that these changes can be confusing and frustrating but the Financial Aid Office at Capitol is committed to helping you understand the changes and how these changes could affect you.  As always, you may stop by the Financial Aid Office or contact us at 301-369-2324 or email finaid@captechu.edu.

Thank you for updating your 2016-17 FASFA, if needed, and don’t forget to file your 2017-18 FAFSA beginning October 1st.

2018-2019 FAFSA Available October 1, 2017 !!

 

The 2018-2019 FAFSA will be available for filing on and after October 1, 2017. 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 2018-2019 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.
