Apply for Financial Aid

Chattahoochee Tech logo

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

In order to apply for financial aid each student must complete the FAFSA each year.

FAFSA Workshops

Need help completing the FAFSA? Chattahoochee Technical College’s Financial Aid Office will be hosting free FAFSA Workshops for current students! Financial Aid staff will be available to answer any FAFSA questions and provide guidance through the process. Be sure to bring all required documents and have your information ready. The workshops are on a walk-in basis and will be held at the dates, times, and locations below.

  • Tuesday, February 7, 2023 4:00pm-6:30pm at North Metro Campus, Room A-110
  • Tuesday, February 21, 2023 4:00pm-6:30pm at Marietta Campus, Room G1121

Gather the information required to complete the FAFSA:

  • Your social security number and your parent’s social security numbers if you are a dependent.
  • Federal tax returns for two years prior to the academic year you are applying, including W2 information, for yourself, spouse if you are married, and for your parents if you are dependent.


In completing the FAFSA, you (and your parents, if required) will sign the application using an FSA ID. If you don’t have a FSA ID, you can create one when logging in to the Federal Student Aid website. You will create a username and password. You will enter your email address, name, date of birth, Social Security number, contact information, and challenge questions and answers.

Complete your application at studentaid.gov:

  1. Enter all the necessary information. You may use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to input tax information.
  2. If you need help, the side bar to the right will guide you through each question.
  3. At the point where you have to list the schools that you want to receive your information, you’ll want to list the school code for Chattahoochee Technical School. That code is 005620. This will ensure that your application is sent to us electronically.
  4. Submit your application.

Follow up on your FAFSA:

When your application is processed you will receive a SAR (Student Aid Report) either by email or mail. You should review your SAR for any necessary corrections or updates.

  1. Log on to BannerWeb to check your financial aid status.
  2. If you have been selected for Verification, you will need to provide additional documents either to the financial aid office or through Verification Gateway (VG) from Inceptia, an online portal to guide students and parents through verification before financial aid can be awarded.
  3. If your FAFSA application is selected for verification by the U.S Department of Education, you will receive an email from VGCS@inceptia.org, or a postcard from Inceptia, containing Chattahoochee Technical College’s unique website link to start the verification process.

We encourage you to begin the verification process within 7 days of receiving notification from Verification Gateway to ensure you receive your financial aid in time for payments. Failure to complete the verification process could result in the delay or denial of your financial aid.

Follow these steps to complete your verification:

  1. Access our school’s unique website link in the email from VGCS@inceptia.org or listed below.
  2. Create your account* and choose preferences for text messages and e-signatures.
  3. Complete your Task List.
  4. Confirm your signature and review your information.
  5. Sign your account.

*If you are a dependent student, your parent also needs to create their own account and complete each of these steps.
