General Information about student aid, and applying for student aid:
Federal Student Aid Information Center
Student Aid and the Web
To apply for financial aid at Globe Institute of Technology, you must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) either via the web at www.fafsa.ed.gov or by paper at our Financial Aid Office. The Federal school code is 017010.
If student or parent of dependent student do not have a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to sign FAFSA application online, student/parent could apply for PIN via web at www.pin.ed.gov
After the completed FAFSA is mailed to the Department of Education, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR). Globe Institute of Technology will also receive a copy of the SAR that we will use to determine your award eligibility for federal grants PELL, FSEOG, and for student Direct Loans.
Direct loans (Subsidized/Unsibsidized) are low-interest loans for students and parents to help pay for college for the cost of a student's education. The lender is the U.S. Department of Education rather than a bank. For more information about the Direct Loan program visit web site www.direct.ed.gov
Every student is encouraged to complete online (at www.studentloans.gov or/and www.nslds.ed.gov) an Entrance counseling and a Master Promissory Note (MPN) - the legal request to manage Direct Loan (DL)
Direct PLUS loans are also low-interest loans available to parents of dependent students. Interest is charged during all periods. MPN for PLUS is also available at www.studentloans.gov
NYS TAP Grant
New York state residents will receive an Electronic Application (ETA) for Tuition Assistance Program (New York State TAP grant) directly from Higher Education Services based upon your filing the FAFSA. Financial Aid Office will assist you in completing electronically the TAP application process. The NYS codes for TAP ETA are 7936 for up to 2-year undergraduate programs and 6936 for 4-year undergraduate programs. You can estimate your TAP award by using the TAP estimator at www.hesc.com.
Once your application to HESC has been submitted, you will receive an award letter or E-mail notification in about 4 to 8 weeks. In the meantime, you can check your application status at www.hesc.com.

There are several lenders that offer alternative loans in addition to or in place of the Stafford Loan. Requirements differ and rejection by one lender does not mean that you cannot apply to another for consideration. Listed below are the links to several lenders. These loans should be considered only after your eligibility for the Stafford Subsidized and Unsubsidized has been determined.
