Financial Aid

Welcome to the ACC Financial Aid Office! 

The ACC Financial Aid Office offers students assistance with paying for their college expenses in the form of federal and state grants, loans, and work-study opportunities.

To apply for financial aid, students are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, also known as a FAFSA. There is no deadline to submit a FAFSA and applications are processed year-round. However, processing the complete applications can take up to six weeks to complete. Students are highly encouraged to start the enrollment process early and to complete their FAFSA early in the admissions process to ensure funds are available for qualified students by the payment deadline.

Financial Aid Advisors are available in Room A-155 to assist students one-on-one with their FAFSA application, loan information, Veterans aid support, financial aid eligibility, and other questions or concerns.

  • Apply for FAFSA now at www.fafsa.ed.govFinancial Aid applications are accepted throughout the year; however, some funds are limited and awarded on the first-come-first basis. Apply early for best opportunities!
