The first Loan Disbursement, Pell grant, AR Challenge, and other scholarship refunds for Fall 2020 will be ready on the dates below. Remember the most efficient way to receive your refund is by direct deposit. Direct deposit forms are available in the Business Office and under Student Forms in MyCollege at www.sautech.edu. It is not necessary to submit a new form if your direct deposit information previously submitted is still correct.
- Direct deposit February 24
- Paper checks March 3
If we are able to process the direct deposit refunds sooner, we will do so. An email will be sent to your SAU Tech email address notifying you of your direct deposit refund. Direct Deposit Authorization forms can be submitted to the Business Office until February 22.
There may be later Loan disbursements as stated in your award letter. The refund for the later loan disbursements will be available 5-7 business days following the disbursement date.
Scholarships can be an important part of paying for a college education. Check out our Scholarship page to learn more about the opportunities available to you.
Forms of Financial Aid
Important Information about the FAFSA:
When completing the FAFSA (Federal Application for Federal Student Aid), the Financial Aid Office strongly encourages you and your parents (if required) to select the IRS Data Retrieval Option. Choosing not to use this tool could result in a delay to your Financial Aid Award. You can now file your FAFSA as early as October 1 as the federal government is allowing the use of tax information from the current year. This reduces the need to wait until after taxes are filed in the spring. Get an early start! If you have any questions or want more information, please contact the Financial Aid Office. Apply Here!

The Folds of Honor Foundation (FHF) provides post-secondary educational scholarships for children and spouses of military servicemen and women killed or disabled while serving our great nation. Scholarships are used to subsidize the costs of tuition, textbooks, fees, housing, special tools and equipment necessary for coursework, school-approved tutoring, and any other expense that the school, where the student is enrolled, may deem appropriate and unmet. There are two types of scholarships: Immediate-Use Scholarships and Future-Use Scholarships.
