ACP offers regularly scheduled workshops for ACP Students.

Financial Aid Workshops

Financial Aid Workshops allow ACP staff to assist students with applying for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in a small group setting. Most students complete their initial FAFSA at the College Access Workshop. Each subsequent year, ACP students are required to attend a FAFSA Workshop lead by ACP staff to update and resubmit their application for the new school year. Workshops are typically scheduled between March and May.
