Financial Aid Award Letter

The Financial Aid Award Letter shows the amounts of financial aid a student is eligible for during a specified academic year.  The amounts specified on the Financial Aid Award Letter are subject to change based upon actual enrollment at the time of calculation and final enrollment on the census date.

Once Gateway Technical College has received a FAFSA and all required forms and documents have been submitted and processed, students will receive a Financial Aid Award Letter. Students who are eligible to receive financial aid, are notified that a Financial Aid Award Letter is available for viewing via Gateway Technical College student email. Once available, the Financial Aid Award Letter may be viewed by going to My Gateway | Financial Aid | Financial Aid Home. Then click on Review and Sign your Financial Aid Award Letter.

The most common sources of aid you'll find on the Financial Aid Award Letter include, but are not limited to:

  • Student loans
    Money that must be paid back, such as Federal Direct Loans and Private Student Loans.
  • Grants
    Money that does not have to be paid back, including the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), Institutional Grants, and State Grants. Grants are usually based on financial need.
  • Work-study
    Money earned by working, either on-campus for the school, or off-campus for a private non-profit organization or public agency.
  • Scholarships
    Money that does not have to be paid back, including any scholarships you informed the school about, as well as those the school is offering.
  • Veteran Benefits
    Many benefits are available to advance the education and skills of Veterans and Service members.
