How to Apply for Federal Financial Aid for CDL Training
Do you want to train for your CDL, but you’re worried about the cost? The good news is that at New England Tractor Trailer Training School there is financial aid available for those who qualify.
The first step is filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) which is a free and easy process for people interested in applying for student loans and the Pell Grant to train for their CDL at NETTTS. The financial aid office at New England Tractor Trailer Training School can be available to help answer questions you may have about the FAFSA forms or student loans in general before you begin to fill out any paperwork.
Finishing and turning in the FAFSA application can help decide what aid you may qualify for, including the Pell Grant. The Pell Grant does not need to be repaid, except under certain circumstances which can be found at https://studentaid.gov/understand-aid/types/grants. To complete the FAFSA you may need certain personal documents and paperwork, and you may need to know about any related deadlines.
What Paperwork Do You Need for the FAFSA?
You may need certain paperwork to help confirm your identity and the information within the FAFSA, including:
- Social security number
- A driver’s license number
- Federal tax information including IRS 1040/W-2 information
- Financial information including salary
The financial aid office is ready to help you figure out what kind of Financial Aid you may be eligible for, as well as answer other questions you may have about loans, grants, and other funding options.
What Is an FSA ID?
It can be a good idea for FAFSA applicants to get a FSA ID, which is a username and password linked to your FAFSA application. It can help to prevent any problems with processing your FAFSA application. An FSA ID also lets students use the myStudentAid app, sign loan contracts, and find information online.
