CBS Austin: ACC offers extended deadline for FAFSA
Austin Community College is extending the deadline for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) program.
Aid programs funded by the State of Texas have a priority deadline of January 15 but ACC says it will be accepting applications through March 1 for the summer semester and through April 1 for the fall semester.
In addition, ACC says FAFSA will not be impacted by the government shut down.
The FAFSA is an online form that allows the government to determine a student’s eligibility for financial aid through federal grants, work study funds, and loans.
“Paying for college is one of the biggest roadblocks our students face,” says Jason Briseno, executive director of Student Assistance. “With some federal funds available on a first-come, first-served basis, we encourage our students to apply early. Those who fill out their forms by the priority deadline may be eligible for more financial aid.”
