Before they are admitted, all new students entering an associate degree or credit certificate program must provide proof of high school completion or a high school transcript showing that graduation is imminent this summer and proof of immunization for Measles, Mumps, Rubella, and Varicella.
Free college through PACT: Pledge to Advance Connecticut is still available to graduates of Connecticut’s high schools who have never attended college before. Accessing PACT and any financial aid starts with completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.gov. PACT is not based on household income; all students who plan on attending full- or part-time should complete the FAFSA so they can access PACT, even if they do not think they will qualify for need-based aid. Additional information is available at ct.edu/pact. Assistance with the FAFSA will be available during the Open House.
A new student who attends the open house is accepted into a credit-bearing program for the summer 2023 term or fall 2023 semester, and registers for classes in person at the open house, will be entered for a chance to win a $1,000 scholarship from the ACC Foundation.
