Financial Aid Programs and Application Process
2011-2012 Academic Year (July 1, 2011 – June 30, 2012)
Students at Atlanta Technical College (ATC) are encouraged to apply for the federal and
state Student Financial Aid (SFA) programs that are available to assist with educational
costs. The following financial aid information will provide you with an overview of the
programs available, the eligibility criteria, and the application process. Additional
information and/or clarification of the SFA programs are available in the Financial Aid
Office. Please note that the information contained herein is based on federal, state
and/or institutional policies which are subject to change.
Atlanta Technical College does not participate in the Federal Student Loan Program. The
Financial Aid Office cannot certify student loan applications
The student’s high school transcript and/or prior college transcript must be on file in the
Atlanta Tech Admissions Office prior to the student receiving financial aid funding
Federal Financial Aid Programs
Federal PELL Grant Program (PELL)
The PELL Grant Program provides assistance to students who demonstrate financial need as
defined by the U. S. Department of Education. PELL recipients must be enrolled in an eligible
program of study and must not have attained a baccalaureate degree or a first professional
degree. The maximum award amount for 10-11 is $5550.00. Recipients must be enrolled in an
eligible program of student. The award amount each term is based on the number of
enrollment hours each term.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
This program is designed to ‘supplement’ the grant assistance awarded to students with the
highest PELL eligibility. Funds are limited and based on the school’s allocation received each
year. Since funds at Atlanta Tech are limited, students who meet the priority deadline date for
applying for federal aid have the greatest chance of receiving FSEOG.
Federal Work Study (FWS) Program
The FWS Program provides part-time employment. FWS students must maintain a cumulative
grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or greater. FWS offers exposure to real work experiences,
development of positive work ethics and time management skills. Students interested in
participating in this program must complete an ATC FWS application in addition to the FAFSA.
State Financial Aid Programs
Helping Outstanding Pupils Educationally (HOPE) Scholarship Program
The HOPE Grant is available to students enrolled in a certificate or diploma
program of study. Recipients are eligible for a maximum of 63 semester
hours of HOPE Grant Payment. Effective fall semester, HOPE Grant
recipients must have a minimum 3.0 GPA at the 30th and 60th hour check
points to remain eligible for the HOPE Grant.
The HOPE Scholarship is awarded to HOPE Scholars enrolled in an
associate degree (AAS) program of study. HOPE Scholars are students who
graduate from a Georgia high school with this distinguished honor or
students who are ‘grandfathered’ into the program after attempting a
minimum of 45 associate or baccalaureate degree credit hours with a 3.0
or greater cumulative GPA at the required checkpoints. HOPE Scholarship
applicants must also complete the ATC HOPE Scholarship Application.
Please note that the HOPE does not cover the Technology Fee, Late Fee or
Malpractice Insurance Fee.
Effective Fall Semester, the HOPE Award will only cover a portion of tuition
cost. The HOPE Fees and Book Awards have been eliminated effective fall
semester. For the 2011-2012 academic year, The HOPE tuition will cover
$60.75 per semester hour. The tuition charges effective fall = $75.00 per
semester hours. Therefore, the student will be responsible for $14.25 per
semester hour unless he/she qualifies for Pell Grant or some other type of
Financial Aid Eligibility
ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA Although there are specific criteria governing
each SFA program, all SFA recipients must meet the following
• U. S. citizenship or eligible non-citizenship
• Selective Service registration, if required at
• High school diploma or GED
• Enrollment in an eligible program of study
• Maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
• Not owe a refund to a federal grant program or be in default on a
federal student loan
Deadline Dates
Applicants are encouraged to begin the application
process as soon as possible prior to the academic
year/term they would like to receive financial
assistance. The academic year is July 1 – June 30, and
the priority deadline date is March 1st preceding the
chosen academic year. Should the applicant fail to
meet the priority deadline date, all aid applications
and supportive documents must be submitted to the
aid office by the following semester deadline dates:
Fall Semester -- July 1
Spring Semester -- November 15
Satisfactory Academic Progress &
Special Circumstances
SFA recipients must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) toward the completion of their
certificate, diploma or degree. This includes maintaining a 2.0 or greater grade point average (GPA)
and completing the program within 150 percent (150%) of the standard time frame required.
Students must satisfactorily complete 67% of all attempted classes each semester to complete the
program within the 150% time frame. Grades of D, F, W, WF, WP, U and I adversely affect the
student’s completion rate. Students who fall below the Minimum requirements (GPA or
completion rate) are required to pay their own tuition and fees until they regain SAP eligibility. If
extenuating circumstances occur, the student may file an appeal to regain financial aid eligibility.
These SAP regulations will change effective fall semester (August 23, 2011)
Recommendation: Students who decide to change majors or withdraw from classes should check
with their financial aid counselor to determine if and how their financial aid may be affected. 36
Students (and or the parents of dependent
students) who experience changes (loss of
employment, change in dependents, etc.) in
their financial circumstances, should notify
their Financial Aid Office in writing.
Documentation is often required, but this
could result in an increase in funding.
