    A DACC student who may receive any State or Federal financial aid must meet the following minimum standards of program guidelines and academic progress in order for financial aid to be awarded:

  • A student must be enrolled in an eligible program of study which leads to a college level degree or certificate, or transfer equivalent.
  • A student may receive financial aid while taking remedial classes and enrolled on an eligible program. However, financial aid can be received for only one academic year of remedial classes (30 semester hours) This includes all attempted hours.
  • A student must be enrolled in the minimum number of hours required by the financial aid program.
  • Only students who have graduated from high school or have a GED are eligible to receive financial aid. The exception is Ability to Benefit Criteria for students who meet this criteria and began attendance in their Degree Seeking program at Danville Area Commuity College prior to July 1, 2012.
  • Apply for financial aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You may use the paper application or use the internet to apply at .
  • Provide verification documentation to establish accuracy of FAFSA information.

    Eligibility for financial aid is determined by individual "Financial Need". Financial need is the difference between the costs of attending college for a period of attendance and the amount a student's family can be expected to contribute from their income and assets.

    Because various sources of funds are limited, it is usually necessary to meet a student's needs by combining several forms of aid. The combination of more than one kind of aid is referred to as as "financial aid package". Please visit for additional detailed information.
