Financial Aid

A variety of financial aid options are available to MTTI students who qualify for financial assistance. You can explore these options below.

Federal Student Aid (Pell Grant and Federal Student Loans)

All prospective students can apply for Federal Student Aid, which is made up of the Pell Grant and Federal Student Loans, using the following process: 

  1. Complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You can do this on your own, but MTTI recommends you meet with our Financial Aid Department to assist you with your FAFSA.
  2. MTTI gets the results of your FAFSA 7 days after it is completed. The Financial Aid Department will call you to schedule a meeting. There, you will discuss the next step in your financial aid process.
  3. Meet with the Financial Aid Department to discuss the amount of Pell Grant and Federal Student Loans available to you. At this meeting, you will also learn about repaying your Federal Student Loans and complete your Master Promissory Note (your statement that you will repay your Federal Student Loans).

If you have any questions regarding financial aid, don’t hesitate to contact us.


GI Bill Benefits

Eligible Veterans can apply for tuition assistance through the Department of Veteran’s Affairs using this process:

  1. Visit the e-Benefits website or visit your local VA office to apply for benefits. They’ll guide you through their process to get your benefits. Use MTTI's school VA code: 25104031.
  2. Call 575-523-6811 and set up an appointment with our Admissions Staff.
  3. MTTI will need official transcripts from all previously attended high schools, colleges or post-secondary training programs. If you don’t have them, we can help you order them.
  4. People eligible for GI Benefits can also apply for Federal Student Aid (Pell Grant and Federal Student Loans). Meet with our Financial Aid Director if you would like help applying.
  5. Once you receive your Certificate of Eligibility letter from Veterans Affairs, certifying that you are entitled to benefits for MTTI, bring us a copy. We will log into the VA ONCE web portal and certify your case.
