Please remember to apply for FTA early!  You can apply up to 60 days prior to the class start date.  Applying early will result in a quicker approval and the amount may be applied to your bill prior to financial aid disbursements.  This will allow you to receive any additional aid you may be eligible to receive in a timely manner.
