Types of Aid
Financial aid generally falls into two categories: gifts or self-help.
- Gifts are scholarships and grants given to you, which you do not need to repay. These may come from federal funds, state funds, Indiana Tech, or private sources.
- Self-help includes loans through the Federal Direct Student Loan program as well as private lenders.
The first step in applying for financial aid is completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. When you apply for aid, please remember to include Indiana Tech as a college choice by using our OE code number, 001805.
