student in collision repair program at Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is how the U.S. Department of Education determines a student’s eligibility for federal financial aid.

They will consider your income, assets, and other household information as well as your family’s income and assets if you are still a dependent.

Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology’s priority filing deadline is April 1. The deadline to complete the FAFSA to determine eligibility for the PA State Grant is May 1, though in 2024 it was delayed until June 1.

Students are highly encouraged to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool on the FAFSA. This tool allows students and parents to access their IRS tax return information and directly place it onto the FAFSA.

Complete the FAFSA

Whether you’re a student, parent, or borrower, you’ll need to create an account online to complete federal student aid tasks. Once you create your account, you may complete the FAFSA online.

Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology’s school code is: 014990

The FAFSA for the academic year 2024–2025 (Summer 2023, Fall 2024, Spring 2025) opened in January 2024 and uses 2022 Federal Tax Return information.
