Most Popular Fields of Study


Interested students must complete the school’s application form, which is available online. There is a nonrefundable application fee. Each applicant must also submit an official high school transcript or GED score report, an official SAT or ACT score report, and any AP or college credit transcripts if applicable. Letters of recommendation are not required, but some students may need to take COMPASS / ASSET placement tests (which are offered at the college free of charge).

Certain programs also have additional requirements. While students are admitted to the college on a rolling basis all year long, deadlines for registration vary by term and students should contact the school directly for exact dates and deadlines. Students can also elect to attend one of the college’s Senior Days or Early Enrollment Days for more information.

Adult students, non-degree seeking students, transfer students, home-schooled students, and international students may need to use different procedures, so they should refer to the university’s website or contact the Office of Admission for more information about the admissions process and application requirements. Useful statistics and dates are listed on the college’s website.

Financial Aid

More than 75 percent of students attending ACC receive some form of state, federal, private or institutional financial assistance. Most of the students who applied for financial aid were awarded need-based financial assistance. Forms of aid that are available for students attending the college include grants, scholarships, and loans. The school also offers a limited number of scholarships and grants. Some are based on merit; others require applicants to demonstrate evidence of financial need.

All students who wish to be considered for financial aid must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA should be submitted as soon as possible after January 1st each year. If selected for verification, students will also need to complete a Federal Verification Worksheet and/or submit additional documents.

Students are encouraged to contact the Financial Aid Office for more information and assistance with completing the financial aid application process. Students should also note that financial aid applications must be renewed each year. Allen County College also offers a deferred payment plan to help students pay any tuition charges that are not covered by financial aid. Students who wish to pay the in-state tuition rates may also need to submit additional documentation in order to establish their residency.
