To allow students more time and support to navigate the new Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, Austin Community College District (ACC) extends the priority date for the 2024-25 school year. The date for current and future students to apply is now Wednesday, May 1. 

The new FAFSA form is designed to expand eligibility. It’s the first step we encourage students to take if they want financial aid. By applying, they can get access to grants, scholarships, work-study, or loans.

Our financial aid experts are here to help students explore their options, complete the new application, and connect with funds for college.

Encourage students to complete the FAFSA soon. Financial aid is distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
