Financial Aid


A.C.T. offers a limited number of scholarships to students enrolled in the San Francisco Semester. While no federal or state aid—such as a Pell Grant or a Stafford Loan—is available, A.C.T. can work with your current/home college to develop a consortium agreement if you are eligible.
 

Students applying for an A.C.T. scholarship must complete their enrollment application package and submit an online 2017–18 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) (available at www.fafsa.ed.gov) by October 15, 2017 for the Spring 2018 Semester. Private educational loans are also available if you qualify.
 

If you have any questions, please contact A.C.T.'s financial aid office at 415.439.2411 or email jlopez@act-sf.org.
