Student Loans for Florida Institute of Technology Students

About Florida Institute of Technology

Florida Institute of Technology StudentsFlorida Institute of Technology, or Florida Tech, is a relatively young technical school whose academic youth hasn’t stopped it from developing premier programs in sciences and engineering. With its main campus located in Melbourne, Florida, Florida Tech has many satellite campuses (too many to name here), and hosts 5,600 undergrads. It’s been listed as a Tier 1 national university (looking good), as well as a ‘Best Buy’ for both quality and cost of education in 2011. If these weren’t compelling enough reasons to attend Florida Tech, their mascot is a panther, which is awesome for two reasons: 1) panthers are awesome, and 2) you can make Anchorman jokes all the time.

Say you’re part of the 93% of students who receive FIT financial aid, which means you’re most likely both being given money and are borrowing money to attend Florida Tech. If that’s the case, you absolutely need to limit your spending. Melbourne’s got some cool attractions for college students, especially when it comes to restaurants, and, you know, beaches that are sunny and perfect year round. We want you to enjoy your time there, but we want you to keep a cap on your spending as well. Watch your cash, and limit how much you can spend over certain periods of time.
