October may bring to mind pumpkins, candy, and Halloween, but did you know that October is also Financial Aid Month at ACC?

ACC’s Financial Aid Month takes place every October to celebrate the opening of the new Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) applications. The 2023-2024 FAFSA/TASFA allows students to apply for funds for fall 2023. 

To help encourage students to submit their applications, the Financial Aid team will hold special events and hours of operation throughout the month. In addition, students have the opportunity to win a $250 gift card for completing their FAFSA & ACC admissions application by October 31, 2022.

See below for a list of events this month and help spread the word about the Financial Aid Month raffle to your students.
