Financial Aid Assistance

Financial Aid Assistance

Financial assistance at DACC is available in the form of scholarships, grants, loans and part-time employment. In-depth information and financial aid counseling may be obtained from the Financial Aid Office located in Vermilion Hall, 1st floor, West Wing. The office is staffed by professionally qualified financial aid specialists and administrative personnel.

To be eligible for most financial assistance programs at Danville Area Community College, a student must:

  1. Be enrolled and accepted at Danville Area Community College in a certificate, degree or transfer program.
  2. Apply for financial aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
  3. Provide verification documentation to establish accuracy of FAFSA information.
  4. Meet the Standards of Academics Progress.
  5. Have earned a high school diploma or general education degree (GED).

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 need by combining several forms of aid. This combination of more than one kind of aid is referred to as a “financial aid package.”
