Is there still time to get financial aid?
After applying to ACC, your first step to financial aid includes completing your FAFSA to apply for grants (free money), loans, and work study employment. Applying early helps ensure the best financial aid options, but FAFSA processes applications year round, meaning it is never too late to complete your FAFSA!
I applied last year but didn’t take classes. Do I have to start over with the application?
