Dear SUN Tech Students and Parents,
It is our pleasure to welcome the class of 2024 to SUN Tech. We are extremely excited to have students back on campus and filling our programs and hallways with energy and enthusiasm for learning. It is our mission to help every student feel welcomed, connected, and part of the SUN Tech family! Additionally, we will strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her technical and professional skills training throughout the year. We believe that all SUN Tech students should graduate occupationally and academically ready to enter the workforce, serve in the armed forces, and/or pursue additional post-secondary training opportunities.
We hope that you will find our website helpful and informative. Throughout the year, we will share additional resources, information, and announcements below. We will also share additional information pertaining to important events or activities via daily announcements, student emails, or the SUN Tech website.
In conclusion, we are honored to serve as your Career Resource Center team here at SUN Tech. It is truly a privilege to be part of a learning community where parents, instructors, support staff, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that promote and support personal growth along with success. Please feel free to contact us at 570-966-1031 ext.113, via email, or stop in for a visit anytime!

FAFSA (Federal Application for Student Aid)
FAFSA stands for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. The FAFSA can be filled out free-of-charge by anyone planning to attend college and is used to determine a student's eligibility for federal, state, and institutional assistance with their college education. The FAFSA can be submitted online at studentaid.gov
(Note: There are commercial services available that can help students fill out their FAFSA, but the form and submission process are always free when submitted through the official website. If you don't want to pay someone else to prepare your FAFSA, please make sure you're using studentaid.gov!)
Because there is so much involved in getting enrolled in college (taking the SAT's, organizing your financial situation, applying and getting approved) you should start planning as early as possible. The American Council on Education has created a useful new resource called KnowHow2GO that can help you keep track of all these milestones and ease the way into your college education.
