Your world is shaped by who you are
I. Students must apply for admission to Central Alabama Community College and complete all enrollment requirements prior to receiving financial aid awards. This process includes submission of official high school transcripts, GED scores and certificates, and official transcripts from all previously attended colleges to the Office of Enrollment Services. Transient students are not eligible to receive federal financial aid.
II. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at http://www.fafsa.gov and list the Central Alabama federal school code (001007) on their applications. This application should be completed as soon as the student and/or the parents of a dependent student complete their Federal Income Tax Returns each year. Students are responsible for checking their MyCACC accounts frequently to determine if any additional documentation is required to complete the processing of their financial aid awards.
III. Approximately one-third of all financial aid applications are selected by the Department of Education for a process called verification. Documentation requirements will be posted to the student’s MyCACC account. Students are responsible for checking their CACC e-mail account and their MyCACC account frequently.
IV. Once all required paperwork has been received and verified, financial aid awards will be posted to the student’s MyCACC account. Financial aid payment is prorated based on student enrollment status and career path. Questions regarding the conversion process should be addressed to the Financial Aid Office. To be considered for a Federal Direct Stafford Loan, the student must be enrolled for at least six semester hours.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Students are expected to attend all classes for which they are registered. Students ARE NOT eligible to receive financial aid for classes never attended or for audit courses.
