How to Use Outside Scholarships

How to Receive Funds

ACC will note your scholarship in your records when the scholarship check arrives in the Financial Aid Office. The funds will be applied to your account no earlier than the week before classes begin.

You must pay your tuition and fees if:

  • ACC has not received your scholarship funds; or
  • Your total aid (including grants and loans) does not cover the bills owed.

Checks must be mailed to:

ACC Highland Business Center
Financial Aid - ATTN: Scholarship Coordinator
5930 Middle Fiskville Rd.
Austin, TX 78752

Requirements:

  • Make checks payable to Austin Community College.
  • Include a cover letter with your name and ACC student ID or Social Security number, and any instructions for disbursement.
  • Write your name and ACC student ID or Social Security number in the memo section of the check.
  • If your donor sends checks co-payable to you and ACC,  you must take the check to any campus Financial Aid Office to have it endorsed and deposited into your account.

Enrollment verification

If a donor requires verification of enrollment, you can provide them a copy of your class schedule or billing statement available in Online Services.
