Financial Aid Adjustments

All financial aid awards are subject to adjustments based on the availability of funds, your enrollment status, any supplementary assistance you might receive, changes in information and your being in compliance with ACC’s academic requirements for receiving financial aid.

  • Your initial aid award is based on full-time attendance and will be modified to a lesser amount if you enroll for fewer than 12 credit hours per semester or should you reduce your hours after registration.
  • The Financial Aid Office determines your aid eligibility based on your enrollment on the first day of class for each semester.
  • Your award does not apply to non-credit courses. Your award is dependent upon your satisfactory academic progress.
  • Your academic progress will be reviewed at the end of each semester.
  • We reserve the right to cancel or revise your aid, including possible repayment of aid, at any time for reasons that include but are not limited to the following: Failure to make satisfactory academic progress, changes in the availability of funds, changes in marital status and changes in Financial Resources.

The ACC Financial Aid Office will perform the required federal calculation (Return of Title IV) for students who withdraw from all classes for the semester OR do not earn passing grades in all classes for the semester. Students may be required to return (pay back) financial aid funds to ACC and the U.S. Department of Education.
