Financial Assistance Overview
The mission of York Technical
Collegeís Financial Resources Office is to provide quality assistance to all
students and to make every effort to insure students who desire to attend
the College, but cannot afford to do so, are provided financial resource
assistance to complete their educational goals. The types of aid available
include grants, scholarships, loans, a tuition payment plan, part-time
employment, and veteransí benefits.
After Submitting the Free Application
A Student Aid Report (SAR) will be available online at www.fafsa.gov within two to four weeks after the FAFSA is submitted. Applicants should review the SAR carefully and notify the Financial Resources Office if corrections are needed. The Financial Resources Office will receive the studentís record electronically (if the student listed York Technical Collegeís school code  on the FAFSA) and contact the student if additional information is required. Missing information letters are mailed out upon receipt of the financial aid application and a reminder email is sent in 30 days. You may also use WebAdvisor to check for documents needed. Forms can be downloaded and printed from WebAdvisor.
Electronic PIN Numbers
The U.S. Department of Education will mail a personal identification number to new students who apply for assistance. Students can use the PIN to access account information, renew applications, and take the place of the studentís signature for FAFSA on Web applications. Request a PIN at www.pin.ed.gov
Additional Financial Aid Websites
Priority dates are identified for each semester to provide adequate time for processing and awarding financial assistance to students before classes start. If students submit their financial aid application after these dates, they should be prepared to pay for tuition, fees and books. Award notifications will be mailed approximately two weeks after student files are complete. The award notification will list the type(s) and amount(s) of assistance. You can also view your status and award(s) on WebAdvisor.
Fall: June 1
Students must have their financial aid package completed before registration. Late applicants must come prepared to meet their expenses. Reimbursements (up to the amount of eligibility) are made to qualified students.

through the York Technical College
Foundation and local citizens, civic clubs and businesses. They are
