Student Loans

What are student loans? 

Student loans are a type of financial aid. Besides student loans, financial aid also includes grants, scholarships, and work-study.  Learn more about student loans from ACC’s Financial Aid office.

How do you get a student loan? 

You may also get a student loan from a bank or other lender; however, we highly recommend considering federal student loans first.

How much should I borrow?  

Only borrow what you need. You are not obligated to take what is offered. Spend time calculating your expenditures and income for the entire semester.  Our semester-based budget can help. If you need help figuring out how much you need, meet with a financial coach.
