Students who do not have a valid high school diploma, GED, or a home schooling document that meets our school’s policy, will not be eligible for federal financial aid. Students without a high school diploma must get a GED if they want to receive federal financial aid. NOTE: Students who have previously qualified through the ATB or the 6 credit successful completion rules are “grandfathered” in. Students must have met the rule and be enrolled in an eligible program by June 30, 2012 to meet the “grandfather” rule.
Males 18 and older must be registered with the Selective Service Administration. Men ages 18 to 25 who haven't registered yet, can register on the FAFSA form, online at http://www.sss.gov/ or at any U.S. Post Office. Male applicants who did not register before their 26th birthday must submit statements to their school's financial aid office explaining why they did not register.
Not be in default of a federal educational loan or owe refund on a federal grant.
Beginning July 1, 2012 students can only receive a Pell Grant for 12 (full-time) semesters or less. This is retroactive to the very first time a student received a Pell Grant and is not limited to attendance at AACC. The US Department of Education will keep track of your Pell Grant Lifetime Eligibility Used (LEU) by adding together the percentages of your Pell Grant scheduled awards that you received for each award year.
