Financial Aid for Part-Time Students

Financial Aid for Part-Time Students

Summary

Financial aid available to students enrolled less than full-time

Overview

You do not have to be a full-time student to receive aid; however, the amount you qualify for will be reduced if you are less than full-time. As far as receiving financial aid goes, full-time status consists of taking 12 or more credit hours per semester for receiving the full amount of a Pell Grant. In order to receive the full amount of a North Carolina Community College Grant, you need to be in 15 or more credits per semester. To be eligible for loans, you need to be enrolled at least half-time (six credits).

For more specific information about how much financial aid you'll receive if you attend less than full-time, please visit our Financial Aid Office in the Bailey Student Services Building.

Attending Two Schools at Once

If you're enrolled at another school and would like to take some classes at A-B Tech to transfer back to your main school, you may be able to combine the hours at both institutions for financial aid purposes. It's possible to receive financial aid under these circumstances as long as certain requirements are met. 

To apply, you'll need to submit a Consortium Agreement form, which can be obtained from the Financial Aid Office. This can be brought in to the Financial Aid Office in the Bailey Student Services Building, faxed to (828) 281-9883, or mailed to Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College, Attn. Financial Aid Office, 340 Victoria Road, Asheville, NC 28801. If you fax or mail documents to Financial Aid, please include the cover sheet, which you can download from the Financial Aid Forms and Resources section of our website.
