Family/Parent Frequent Questions

The Financial Aid Office is here to help your son/daughter attain their post-secondary educational goals. WE CARE!

It is imperative that your son/daughter be involved in the entire financial aid process – from the application through awards and disbursement. The Financial Aid Office will contact the student with any questions that may arise. The students need to understand what types of aid they have and know what loans they are applying for.

The Financial Aid Office can provide general information to anyone. However, to provide specific information about your son/daughter’s financial aid application/award a signed release from the student indicating those individuals we can discuss their confidential information with is required. Students provide this release of information PDF on the Anoka Tech Financial Aid Application. This policy meets the rules and regulations set forth by the Federal and State Privacy Act (FERPA and MGDPA).
