ITI Technical College Vision IS YOUR FUTURE!
At ITI Technical College, it’s our belief that the old proverb “Give a man a fish, he eats for a day; teach him to fish, he eats for a lifetime” has much significance, and its absence in today’s principles has left us with a poorly trained society.
Therefore it is important that the community, ITI Technical College students, and staff understand that we are not only in the education business.
We believe that a technical career often provides a better salary, working conditions, and self-image, which consequently results in a better life. With this belief, we exist to help men and women attain that better life. ITI employees know that they are making an impact on the quality of life in this community and our state.

FINANCIAL AID QUESTIONS
Even if you think your family earns too much to qualify for aid, or too little for the aid to make much of a difference, students are encouraged to complete and submit a FAFSA.
Regardless of income, most families are eligible for multiple types of aid, such as federal loans (Stafford and PLUS), and students are frequently surprised by the amount of aid for which they qualify. Filing is free, and unless you apply, you’ll never know how much assistance you may be eligible to receive.
The Department of Education uses a very rigid set of criteria for determining whether a student is INDEPENDENT for financial aid consideration (which means that the custodial parents’ income and asset information is not considered in determining a student’s financial aid, and therefore not required on the FAFSA).
Regardless of whether you support yourself or not, you are still likely to be considered a DEPENDENT student for financial aid purposes unless you meet certain criteria. Exceptions are granted on a case by case basis.
However, if you have special circumstances that you feel warrant consideration, and for which you may be able to provide documentation, you may contact your school’s financial aid office.
IMPORTANT: If you are considered a DEPENDENT student and do not provide your parents’ information on your FAFSA, your application WILL BE REJECTED.
- Check the status of your application online through the FAFSA website (www.fafsa.ed.gov).
