Pell Grant funding now available in the summer

Current Austin Community College (ACC) students can begin to apply for additional Pell Grant funding now available for summer courses. Funding is accessible for students who have used their entire financial aid award during the fall and spring semesters.

“We understand that paying for college can be difficult for many,” says Terry Bazan, executive director of student assistance. “The availability of summer financial aid can assist with reducing the financial burden and help students stay on track with completing their degree.”

The priority deadline for summer financial aid is March 1. Based on an applicant’s eligibility, a full-time student can receive up to $2,960 in summer Pell Grant funding.

To apply for summer aid, students must complete the following steps:

  • Complete the 2017-2018 FAFSA
  • Submit the Summer Aid Application
  • Be enrolled in eligible courses that count towards a degree plan
  • Meet Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards and be in good academic standing
