Financial Aid

Will I be eligible for financial aid?

Yes. If you apply for financial aid, the university will process your application in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid, taking into consideration cost of attendance at both campuses. To be eligible for aid disbursement, you must be enrolled in a minimum of 12 hours each semester. If you qualify for financial aid, keep in mind that you are responsible for meeting the payment deadlines of both campuses. Because the university’s deadlines may not align with ACC’s, you may need to set up a payment plan or to take an emergency loan to pay ACC while awaiting release of funds from the university.


Where can I live while I’m in PACE?

You have the option of applying to live in the university’s on-campus housing during your time in PACE.

In order to enjoy the full cost-savings benefit of attending ACC, students need to live in the community college’s district. That said, there are no housing requirements for PACE participants, so you may live wherever you and your family think would be best for you.

Campus Life

Will I be able to attend football games as a student?

Yes. PACE program participants may elect to purchase tickets to any Longhorn athletics events (including football) just like any other student.

What sorts of clubs and activities are available to PACE students?

PACE students may participate in clubs and activities at both The University of Texas at Austin and ACC. Support services are available at both campuses as well.

Can I join a sorority or fraternity?

Contact Sorority and Fraternity Life for more information. Some organizations allow PACE members to participate.
