Financial Aid

Do you need financial assistance? WE ARE HERE TO HELP!

THE OCEAN COUNTY VOCATIONAL TECHNICAL SCHOOLS PARTICIPATE IN THE FEDERAL PELL GRANT AND THE FEDERAL STUDENT LOAN PROGRAMS.

Students must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid to determine their eligibility. In order to receive aid, the student and the program must be eligible. The amount of federal financial aid is determined by the student's need, length of the program, and the cost of attendance.

HOW TO APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID

Financial Aid Application

  • To apply for federal financial aid you must meet the following criteria: Have earned a high school diploma or High School Equivalency Diploma; Be a US citizen or eligible non-citizen; Have a valid social security number; Be registered with Selective Service if required; Maintain satisfactory academic progress.
     

  • Student and at least one parent (if student is unmarried and under 24 years of age) must apply for an FSA ID number in order to electronically sign the FAFSA. Electronically signing the FAFSA using a PIN reduces the amount of time it will take for the FAFSA results to reach your school of choice.
     

  • Once an FSA ID number(s) has been obtained, complete and submit your FAFSA online.
     

  • If you are completing your FAFSA to obtain financial aid at OCVTS, you will need to provide our Federal School Code: 016934 in order for us to receive your application and determine your eligibility.
     

  • Complete an Application for Admissions at OCVTS. (Social Security Number must be on application to receive your FAFSA)

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is your application for Federal and State
