- Learn more from the College Opportunity Fund FAQ sheet.
- To sign up go to the College Opportunity Fund Web sign-up page.

Payment Terms - Do NOT wait for a bill
- It is the student's responsibility to ensure that all classes are dropped by the course census date in order to receive a refund or not be financially responsible for the class. Do not rely on the system or drop process to cancel your classes.
- Students with balances less than $831.00 will not be dropped - but will receive notification for any balance greater than $.01 on the payment deadline dates listed in the Payment Deadlines and Outstanding Balance Process.
- Students with balances less than $831.00 are still responsible for their financial obligation to ACC - unpaid balances will be sent to state collections.
- Unsure if your balance is $831.00 or more? Review your account balance by logging into myACC, click on the Student Finance tab, review the balance in the My Account channel.
- Registering after payment deadline? Pay account in full or sign up for the deferred payment plan.

- Receiving partial payment from Financial Aid? Pay remaining balance before payment deadline or risk being dropped for non-payment.

Failure to receive a bill does not relieve you of your financial obligations to the College. Please maintain a current address with the Admissions and Records office so that billing information will reach you in a timely manner.
