ACC gmail is the official communication method of the college and applicants should review it regularly for possible updates and award notifications. Submitted applications remain active throughout the cycle of the application application from January through October. In general, students selected for a fall scholarship will be notified at the end of July, and those selected for a spring scholarship will be notified in November. Note that award notifications could be distributed any time during the year if funding should become available, and students should continue monitoring the ACC gmail account regularly throughout the year.
