In order to complete your degree within two years, ACC recommends full-time enrollment of 15 credit hours per semester.

  • You can only receive loan awards if you are registered in 6 or more credits hours per semester.
  • All other awards (grants, scholarships, etc.) are subject to reduction or cancellation if you are enrolled in fewer than 12 credit hours.
  • Only courses that are required to complete your declared major are eligible to be counted for financial aid purposes (e.g. if a full-time student is taking 6 credits that are not needed towards the completion of the declared major, financial aid will processed based on half-time enrollment).
