Your financial aid awards are not guaranteed to cover the full cost of tuition and fees.
Since the class is no longer on your schedule, your financial aid may need to be adjusted. If a class is canceled, however, you would have an opportunity to register for a different class and avoid changes to your financial aid.
The average processing time is three (3) to four (4) weeks once all documents are submitted. Processing could take longer if you apply for financial aid after the priority date.
Summer financial aid is limited. However, if you have not exhausted your yearly award for loans or Pell grants, you may receive those funds. To apply for summer financial aid, you must complete the financial aid application steps. Be sure to submit the financial aid institutional application for summer.

If you did not graduate high school, you must have a GED or proof of a home school secondary education to be eligible for financial aid.
Earning a certificate or associate degree will not keep you from receiving aid. For example, earning a real estate certificate will not keep you from receiving aid for a real estate associate degree. Keep in mind, there is a maximum number of hours for which you can receive aid in relation to your current major. All previously attempted hours (including hours for a previously earned certificate/associate) must count toward this maximum. For more information about this maximum time frame, refer to our Academic Standards.
No, but most financial aid is prorated for students enrolled in fewer than 12 credits per semester. See disbursement and refunds information to find out how much aid you actually will receive.
Yes, you may be required to repay financial aid in some circumstances. Review the consequences of dropping or withdrawing from a class.
Financial aid suspension does not prohibit you from taking classes at ACC. However, you are responsible for paying tuition and fees.
Your GPA for financial aid will differ from your GPA with the Admissions & Record Office (A&R) when you repeat a class(es) for which you've already earned a grade of A, B, C, D, or F. When calculating your GPA, A&R "replaces" all other grades with the highest grade earned for the class. But Financial Aid does not replace the previously earned grades. All grades earned for repeated classes are included when Financial Aid calculates your GPA for aid eligibility.
Yes. Students receiving financial aid must have a higher completion rate (67 percent) than the students not receiving aid. A grade of F counts as an incomplete class in financial aid calculations.
