The information provided below is for record-keeping purposes only and will be archived soon.

What are the CRRSA eligibility requirements?

  1. You must have been an ACC student taking college credit, continuing education, dual credit or adult education courses anytime since March 13, 2020 (the date the President declared the COVID-19 national emergency).
  2. You must indicate on the CRRSA application that you have been financially impacted in some way by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
  3. Your related expenses must have occurred since March 13, 2020.

What can I use CRSSA for?

These funds may go to tuition and fees at Austin Community College, if you give your express permission on the ACC CRRSA application. This means that the amount you requested, if approved, will go first to take care of any tuition balance that remains on your account. Any amount remaining after your tuition balance is covered will be distributed to your BankMobile account.

CRRSA may also be used by students for any component of their cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care) or child care.

Can I apply for CRSSA funds more than once per semester?

ACC will allow you to apply for funds once each long semester (spring, summer, or fall).

Will CRRSA funds impact or reduce my financial aid or benefits?

No. CRRSA funds are not taken into account when determining your eligibility for federal financial aid or veterans benefits.
