Although summer is fast approaching, remember money is available for students who are attending classes.
It is important to remember this because so many students believe there is not enough financial help available to go to school.
Use every opportunity that you can, financial aid assistance is available all month; if students need help in filling out the applications, visit student financial services.
April is Financial Aid Literacy Month, so attend FAFSA Wednesdays, where professionals help students apply for aid.
There is also a chance to earn a $250 Financial Literacy Award.
After submitting an application, check ACES email for further instructions. An Alamo Cash card will be mailed to you, and your aid award will be directly deposited on the card within a few days.
The deadline to apply for financial aid is May 1. If you complete the application by the deadline, funds will be guaranteed to you in time for fall.
