FAFSA

You will receive an electronic Student Aid Report (SAR) from the processor after you file your FAFSA. Review it for accuracy and make any necessary changes as directed. The federal processor will send a simultaneous electronic record of your Student Aid Report to the financial-aid offices you listed on the FAFSA.

Once the federal processor determines your expected family contribution (EFC), our office will let you know the types and amounts of aid you are eligible to receive. Our acknowledgment to you will be a Financial Aid Award Notice. If additional information is needed to determine your exact eligibility, your award may be estimated. Estimated awards are subject to change until complete information is received. (Please respond promptly to our requests for additional information.) Please notify our office of any changes in your family’s financial status or of receipt of increased resources, including outside scholarships or private education loans.

In accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, each postsecondary institution in the United States that participates in Title IV federal student aid programs and enrolls full-time, first-time degree- or certificate-seeking undergraduate students are required to post a net price calculator on its website. You may use ACC’s Net Price Calculator here.  This calculator uses institutional data to provide estimated net price information to current and prospective students and their families based on a student’s individual circumstances.

Important

You will need a copy of your taxes as well as your parent/guardian’s taxes in order to fill out the FAFSA. Should you need assistance from ACC in filling these out, please be sure to bring a copy of each with you.
