People who want to start at Ashland Community and Technical College this fall will find that college is more affordable than they might have thought.
In-state tuition for Fall Semester 2013 is $144 per credit hour, a lower rate than at other colleges and universities in the area. In-state rates are available to Ohio residents of Adams, Athens, Gallia, Jackson, Lawrence, Meigs, Pike, Scioto and Vinton counties, and West Virginia residents of Cabell, Mingo and Wayne counties.
Even with low tuition, the majority of ACTC students receive some type of college financial aid.
Once new students complete the admission process and are in degree, diploma or certificate status, they can apply for financial aid. The Federal Pell Grant and other forms of federal, state and local aid are available to those who qualify on the basis of financial need.
The “Free Application for Federal Student Aid,” the only form required for most federal and state aid programs, is online at fafsa.gov and ACTC forms are available at ashland.kctcs.edu.
To apply for financial aid as a new student, individuals must have completed the admission process and be in degree, certificate or diploma status. Applicants must also be a US citizen or eligible non-citizen and be registered with the Selective Service as required.
For financial aid assistance, call 1-855-246-2282 or chat online with a financial aid agent at: help.ashland.kctcs.edu.
A tuition payment plan is available at ACTC. For details, contact Anna Tolliver, Administrative Assistant in Human Resources, at 606-326-2088.
