Payment Plan

Full payment is preferred but not required. Students may participate in AACC’s payment plan. If a payment is not received within six days of the scheduled due dates, a $10 late fee will be assessed on the seventh day for each due date.

Accepted Payment Types

We accept credit cards, checks and money order, but receipt of cash is limited, so be sure to check the most current information about our methods of payment.

Learn more about accepted payment types.


Avoid Being Dropped Due to Nonpayment

Initial payment is required approximately three days from time of registration or the student will be dropped from the course. Remember, having a completed ECAP form will not prevent you from being dropped from a course. Only full payment will secure your seat in class.


Students Qualifying for Free and Reduced Meals

Students who qualify for Free and Reduced Meals (FARM) DO NOT pay any tuition but must pay the registration fee, general student fees and any applicable lab fees. Students who wish to change or add a course once the ECAP form has been submitted must complete a new form indicating the new course.

For fall 2017, one 3-credit course will cost approximately $100 for fees, books and materials. A 4-credit course will cost approximately $125 for fees, books and materials.


Early College Access Grant

Students who can demonstrate financial need may apply for a $200 grant to help pay for the registration fees, general student fees, lab fees and remaining 50 percent tuition. Simply submit the Early College Access Grant application at least three weeks before registering in order to ensure enough time for processing. Grant money is limited and distributed on a first- come, first served basis to qualified applicants. Students approved for an Early College Access grant in the fall need not reapply for spring.
