Austin Community College is here to help you succeed. In spring 2021, ACC received CRRSA Act funding to support eligible students financially impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19). These funds are a part of the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund, a federal grant funded by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and are available to students currently enrolled at ACC. Federal funds are limited and not guaranteed. Applications are open to all students once enrolled at the college and are reviewed in the order they are received. You may also access additional community resources, ACC scholarships and Financial Aid.
Eligibility & Requirements
- You must be a degree-seeking student enrolled in at least 6 credit hours at Austin Community College.
- You must be a US Citizen or National, Permanent Resident, or other Eligible Non-citizen.
- You must have a 2020-2021 FAFSA on file with ACC.
- You do *not* need to be receiving federal aid. You may verify the status of your application on your Self Service financial aid page.

You may verify the status of your FAFSA on your Self Service financial aid page.
