Types of Scholarships
Alamance Community College has generous Foundation donors who help hundreds of Alamance Community College students go to school every year. Students must demonstrate academic promise with a 2.5 GPA and at least a 75% completion rate. To be considered for a Foundation Scholarship, students must fill out a FAFSA application and submit it to ACC.
Foundation scholarships are provided to cover gaps in a students financial aid package. Priority will go to students that do not have enough gift aid (Federal and State grants) to cover their outstanding tuition expenses. Based on your enrollment and the outstanding tuition due, your scholarship may be increased or decreased. Foundation scholarships will only cover the in state portion of the students outstanding tuition.
ACC Spring Scholarship opportunity opens October 16, 2017 and closes November 26, 2017.
Scholarship awards will appear on your Self-Service account the week after the Scholarship Committee meets to make awards. Consult your Self-Service account to learn if you’ve been awarded a scholarship.

Scholarships that are offered through other institutions, companies and foundations are considered outside scholarships. The Financial Aid office offers a workshop twice a year to help students apply for outside scholarships. If you have been awarded an outside scholarship, please contact the Scholarship Coordinator at 336-506-4105 so we may post it to your account. We also post outside scholarship opportunities on our front page under NEWS and in the ACC Access. See information on how to process your outside scholarship.
