HOW TO APPLY

APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID
CHECK YOUR EMAIL
ACC will contact you via your ACC email, typically within 7-10 business days, with a financial aid award letter or a letter requesting additional documents.
- Upon receipt of your electronic FAFSA data from the federal processing center, we
will mail you a letter requesting documents needed to complete your file. SUBMIT all
requested documentation promptly. You may be asked to submit copies of tax transcripts
or other documentation to complete your financial aid application. Respond promptly
to these requests (and any follow-up requests) to assure timely processing of your
application. The first letter is the ONLY paper letter you will receive from Financial
Aid, please check your e-mail often to see if there is any other correspondence from
the Financial Aid Office. The Financial Aid Office uses the PRIMARY e-mail address
registered with Admissions.
- To stay compliant with federal regulations, the financial aid office must determine if your high school credential is valid. This does not affect the admission to Alamance Community College. Alamance Community College does except all High School diploma’s including unaccredited institutions for admissions into the college.
- Please provide a copy of your high school credential to admissions and notify the
Financial Aid Office at firstname.lastname@example.org when it is received. To see the full policy please click here.
- Once documentation is received by the financial aid office, it takes approximately 2-3 weeks to process. Please plan accordingly. Deadlines are posted HERE each semester.
