This workshop is required of students borrowing the Federal Direct Student Loan for the first time at ACC. You will be given valuable loan borrowing and repayment information in addition to expert-guided assistance with the online federal loan process. This workshop also covers career counseling and the resources offered by ACC.
This workshop is for students on financial aid “warning” status. The warning status is assigned to students who are not meeting the Satisfactory Academic Progress standards. However, anyone wanting to know more about the academic standards for aid eligibility is encouraged to attend.
At this workshop, you’ll receive personalized assistance applying for financial aid (e.g. grants, loans, work-study, and scholarships).
