Next Steps After Submitting the FAFSA Application 

Once the FAFSA application has been successfully submitted, the Financial Aid office will enter your information within 7-10 business days to begin the financial aid review process. If the Financial Aid office requires additional documentation from students or if the financial aid award is ready for review, students will be notified via email to check their Self-Service account.

In compliance with federal requirements, Durham Tech provides information on campus security and safety measures and statistics.
