Financial Aid

Financial aid can help you pay for college. Most students are eligible for some type of assistance – from grants, scholarships, loans, or work-study. The Financial Aid Office at Austin Community College will work with you to explore options and access the funds you need to achieve a college education.

You’ll ensure any money is available when you need to pay tuition and have the best chance of receiving some of the limited funds. If you miss the date, don’t worry. ACC processes financial aid year-round, and you may receive money for classes you’ve already taken.

Spring – October 15
