Financial Aid Information

The purpose of the financial aid program is to assist students who would be unable to attend college without aid (need-based awards) and to recognize students for their accomplishments and potential for achievement (merit-based awards).

Scholarships, grants, and employment are available. Federal and state financial aid programs, external scholarship programs, and scholarships provided by the college through the Athens Tech Foundation, Inc., fund these financial assistance programs. Athens Technical College does not participate in any of the federal loan programs.

Students should contact the Financial Aid Office to schedule an appointment to discuss financial aid opportunities. Financial Aid staff may be reached by calling the following telephone numbers:

  • Athens Campus —(706) 355-5009
