Time to Process Financial Aid

Time to Process Financial Aid


Length of time to process a financial aid application


It can take about four–six weeks to process a financial aid application, and possibly longer during peak times. Loan applications can take an additional two–four weeks to process.


Be sure to watch your student email and WebAdvisor account and send back any documentation requested as soon as possible. Your application cannot be processed until all the necessary documentation has been received by the Financial Aid Office. These files are reviewed in the order in which all requested documents are received.

Also, remember that you must declare a major to be eligible for financial aid. When you declare a major, please contact the Financial Aid Office to let them know so they can continue processing your FAFSA.

When your award has been processed, an award letter will be posted on your WebAdvisor/Self-Service account.

Contact Information

To check on the status of your financial aid, please email the Financial Aid Office at financialaidoffice@abtech.edu, call us at (828) 398-7900, or visit the Financial Aid Office in the Bailey Student Services Building.
