The cost of tuition should not stand in the way of getting a college education. At ACC, more than half of all students receive some form of financial aid and/or scholarships, and the college’s Office of Financial Aid will help walk you through the application process.
Complete an ACC Admissions Application. You must be fully admitted in order for your financial aid eligibility to be determined.
Submit official transcripts from all previous schools.
File a degree or certificate plan with an Academic Advisor
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) can be completed as soon as the appropriate tax forms are completed. Complete your FAFSA online. This is easy and processing results take about two weeks. Applying online is faster and more accurate. FAFSA online has built-in edits to prevent students from missing required information.
Obtain a PIN to electronically sign the FAFSA. For a dependent student, your parents should also apply for a PIN now so that they can electronically sign the FAFSA. For those who do not already have a PIN, one can be obtained at www.pin.ed.gov. A FAFSA that has not been submitted with the required signature(s) will be rejected by the Department of Education and cannot be processed.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the only government-approved application for determining your eligibility for aid. The FAFSA is available online. If you list the ACC school code (003539), we will download your information electronically from the Federal Central Processing Center.
Please complete the appropriate FAFSA. You are highly encouraged to use the IRS data retrieval tool to complete the tax information on the FAFSA. Using the IRS data retrieval tool will save you time and paperwork once your application is submitted to the school. You will be prompted to use the tool during the FAFSA completion.
Once ACC has received and reviewed the results of your FAFSA, you will receive an email with instructions and a list of required documents. Submit all required documents to ACC at one time. Documents may be submitted in one of the following ways:
In person, at the ACC Enrollment Services Center (Bldg. A)
Via email by scanning your documents and sending them as an attachment. Please include your full name and ACC ID Number in all emails.
Via fax, at 281.756.3840. Please include your full name and ACC ID Number at the top of each page.
The ACC Financial Aid department offers FastTrack To Financial Aid workshops on campus throughout the year with dates for the workshop posted on the Financial Aid web page: www.alvincollege.edu/FinancialAid.aspx. A Financial Aid orientation video is also located on the FA web page.
