Financial Aid

The SATC Financial Aid Office is dedicated to providing support to students and their families in meeting the costs of a college education. SATC participates in a wide variety of federal, state, and private financial aid programs. To apply for financial aid, start with these three steps:

  1. Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at: www.fafsa.ed.gov. The Salina Area Technical College school code is 005499. Please click on our guide, IRS Data retrieval Process when Applying for FASFA for detailed instructions on how to retrieve the I.R.S. information needed for this application.
  2. Four to six weeks after submitting a FAFSA, you will receive confirmation of your financial aid application in the form of a Student Aid Report (SAR). Be sure to check your SAR for accuracy and make any necessary corrections on-line or use Part II of your SAR. Contact the SATC Financial Aid Office if you have questions about making SAR changes.
  3. SATC will receive your financial aid application from the Federal Processor electronically. At this point, we will send you any forms and documents you must submit to the SATC Financial Aid Office to complete your application.

If you have any questions, please contact Rachael Galvan, Financial Aid Specialist, at 785 309-3147 or via e-mail at
