Financial Aid FAQ

Do I have to enroll full-time (12 hours) to get financial aid?

No. Although the award that you see on WebACCess is based on full-time (12 hours) enrollment, your aid will be adjusted to reflect the number of hours that you are enrolled in each semester. Almost all types of aid require at least half-time (6 hours) enrollment to be eligible, and only classes that are required for your ACC degree/certificate plan can be funded

Will I lose my financial aid or owe money back if I drop a class?

Dropping and withdrawing from classes may affect your current and future aid eligibility, and you could owe a portion or all of your financial aid back. Please review the ACC Satisfactory Academic Progress Requirements (link). If you need specific information about your eligibility, please email the ACC Financial Aid Office at fa@alvincollege.edu, or visit the ACC Enrollment Services Center BEFORE dropping or withdrawing from classes.

Do I have to use my parents’ information on the FAFSA?

Generally, the FAFSA requires that you be at least 24 years of age, married, or have a child of your own (that you support) to be considered independent. Please review the dependency questions on the FAFSA for additional criteria.

If you cannot answer “yes” to any of the dependency questions on the FAFSA, then you are required to use your biological parent(s) information. If your parents are not married to each other, use the information for the parent that provided the most financial support during the past 12 months, or during the most recent year that you actually received support from a parent. If your parents are remarried, then you must provide step-parent tax information as well.

What is “verification”, and what documents do I need to submit?

Verification is the process by which the ACC Financial Aid Office ensures that the information provided on the FAFSA is complete and correct, so that aid eligibility can be correctly determined. A student’s file can be selected for verification by the U.S. Dept. of Education or by the school. The verification process is different for every student. You will be asked to provide official documents to ensure that your FAFSA information is complete and correct.
