Hi Samantha:

ACU does have a payment plan. It's called Wildcat Pay. You can read about it on their website: https://www.acu.edu/community/offices/hr-finance/sfs/paying-your-bill/payment-options.html

Your financial aid eligibility is determined by the information you provide on your FAFSA each year. I suggest reaching out to the Early Awareness Chair at the Texas Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators for guidance. You can email their Early Awareness Chair. The email is located here: https://www.tasfaa.org/docs/toc_leadership.html

Hi Samantha! I’m sorry no one’s answered your question yet. We're working hard to get it answered by Professionals with the best insights, but in the meantime I've included a link to a relevant Q&A here on CareerVillage.org that should be super helpful for you to read through.


Ikayani asked: How will I pay for college?, and one of the Pros who answered it said:


Student loans can be complicated. Your current financial situation, your parent's financial situation, the state you live in, and the colleges you apply to can all have an impact in the type of student aid you can get. And there are different kinds of loans: federal loans and private loans.


Let’s start with the basics.


Federal Loans:

Federal loans are limited in value and qualifying for these loans usually depends on the results of your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you qualify for Federal loans, there are two different kinds - subsidized and unsubsidized. A subsidized loan means that the government lends you an amount of money over the course of your college career without charging interest until you graduate (in other words, the lender pays the interest until you’re finished with school). An unsubsidized loan means that your loan begins to earn interest immediately which is compounded (aka added over and over) and can grow to a significant amount! If you take out unsubsidized loans, you have the option to pay the interest while you’re in school to help keep the extra interest from being added to your principal (or original) amount...

Most universities have payment plans, but you want to exhaust all of your scholarship possibilities. Search the internet for scholarships and also the webpage of the university you want to attend. A lot of college and universities have scholarships for incoming freshmen. Student loans will always be available as long as you complete a FAFSA. But I would try to obtain all the free money as possible first.

Have you tried looking into FWS - Federal Work Study Program, at the school? Possible opportunities of receiving funds to go against your balance? FWS funding is not a loan, but you will have to put in some part time work hours to receive the extra cash.
