Important Financial Aid Information for Summer '24

If you are planning to attend summer 2024 classes at UACCM, you should be aware of a few things concerning financial aid you could receive in the summer. If you are eligible for Pell and have received Pell full-time in the fall 2023 and spring 2024 semesters, you will need to take at least 6 hours during the summer to receive additional Pell funds.  These 6 hours can be a mix of the summer terms (Intersession, Summer 1 only, Summer 2 only or Extended Summer), but all classes must be needed for graduation within your chosen degree plan.  If you’ve not yet applied for federal aid this year, it’s not too late.  Just go to and complete the 2023-2024 FAFSA.  If you would like to take out a federal loan in the summer, that will require a 23-24 Student Loan Application .  If you have already borrowed funds in the fall 2023 and spring 2024 semesters, please know there are annual limits to your borrowing.  Please feel free to talk to the Financial Aid Office if you are co

That is a 16 percent increase over spring 2023, which saw an enrollment of 1,665. The increase in spring enrollment is the second straight spring of increased enrollment for UACCM.

In 2022, SSCH was at 16,638; 2023 saw an SSCH of 16,992; and this spring saw SSCH at 19,492. “The increase in headcount for the Spring semester was largely due to the increase in the number of concurrent students from high schools. It is very close to the fall increase and consists primarily of Greenbrier students,” said UACCM Chancellor Lisa Willenberg. “We are in conversations with multiple additional high schools in our service area for similar arrangements where their high school students can get a jump start on the college credits, both in general education core c
