To qualify for financial aid, you must:
You may enroll in a class not on your plan; however, it will not be eligible for financial aid. You are responsible for paying any difference between the financial aid you receive and the tuition you owe. You must pay the amount owed or set up a payment plan by your tuition deadline or you will be dropped from classes.
Generally, you are encouraged to avoid taking courses that are not on your degree plan.
Exceptions: Prerequisites that are required for a course on your degree plan. Example: Math 2412 is a prerequisite to Math 2413 Calculus I.
Financial aid will pay up to 30 semester credit hours of remedial course work.
You must declare a major to receive financial aid. If you're planning to transfer you may want to visit with an academic advisor who can help you choose a major that best aligns with the degree plan at your transfer institution. See a list of ACC advisors by areas of study.
View your degree plan in the Self-Service course planning and registration system. Visit an advisor if you have questions about your plan.
Finally, you should confirm that your student record reflects your current major and catalog year. To check, log in to Online Services and click Student Statuses (under Academic Planning).
If you already have a bachelor’s degree, you must submit a maximum time frame appeal when applying for aid.
Co-enrolled or summer transfer students must obtain financial aid from their home college or university. To apply financial aid to your ACC classes, contact your home institution to request a consortium agreement.
