Important Financial Aid Dates

Please Note:

  • Dates that fall on a weekend or holiday will be extended to the following Monday.
  • *Students receiving a loan for only one semester will receive 50% of the loan amount at the initial disbursement and the 2nd 50% as noted below.
  • **Subsequent refunds occur every Friday, except in weeks where a banking holiday exists.
  • For financial aid purposes, each award year starts with Fall and ends with Summer (e.g. Summer 2018 is the last term of the 2017-18 year)
  • Please be advised that ACC will only process aid once a student’s file is complete, and it is the student’s responsibility to monitor their myACC student portal for outstanding financial aid requirements. Processing time takes approximately 2-3 weeks.
