How to Use Scholarship Funds

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.  If your tuition has already been paid, you will receive a refund from your scholarship.  

You must pay your tuition and fees if:

  • ACC has not received your scholarship funds at least one day prior to the payment deadline; or
  • Your total aid (including grants and loans) does not cover the bills owed.

Checks must be mailed to:

Attn: Scholarship Dept./HBC Financial Aid
Austin Community College
5930 Middle Fiskville Rd.
Austin, TX 78752


  • Make checks payable to Austin Community College.
  • Include a cover letter with your name and ACC student ID number (or last four digits of your Social Security number), and any instructions for disbursement.  Scholarships received without instructions will be refunded to the student via BankMobile after tuition is paid.
  • Write your name and ACC student ID 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.
