Making college affordable is an ACTC mission.
In-state tuition for new students for Spring Semester 2012 is $135 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.
Federal Pell Grants are available to students who qualify. To apply for financial aid, new students must complete the admissions process and fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available online at fafsa.ed.gov or the ACTC website at: ashland.kctcs.edu/Costs_and_Financial_Aid/Financial_Aid/.
In order to get their financial aid file completed by January 9, when classes start, applicants should submit the FAFSA before Christmas. This allows time for the application to be processed by January 2, when ACTC offices open. Those who have submitted the FAFSA should call the Financial Aid Office, 606-326-2198, for an appointment to complete their financial aid file.
A tuition payment plan is also available. For details, contact Anna Tolliver, Administrative Assistant in Human Resources, at 606-326-2088 after January 1.
