THE INFORMATION BELOW IS SPECIFIC TO ACE STUDENTS WHO START IN 2017 AND BEYOND.  



PLEASE do NOT drop an ACE class without discussing your situation with Financial Aid, Counseling and the ACE Coordinator first so we can fully inform you what effect dropping the class would have on future ACE classes and financial aid.

ACE students are required to meet standard rules for financial aid eligibility.  Please review the following policies regarding financial aid eligibility:

Lastly, it is important to frequently check your MyShasta account for information about your financial aid.

  • Some students may need to submit additional documents, beyond the FAFSA application, in order for the Financial Aid Office to evaluate a student’s financial aid eligibility.  See the online instructions for  "How to Complete My File" 
  • The Financial Aid Office will use the “Financial Aid Award Letter” to communicate to students what grants and loans have been awarded to eligible students.  After a student completes their financial aid file, a Financial Aid Technician will process their eligibility and award any grants the student is eligible for which creates the students award letter. The Financial Aid Technician will email the student once when this occurs. A students’ Financial Aid Award Letter can be found on MyShasta under the “Financial Aid” section.
If you are an ACE student and have questions about your eligibility, award amount, disbursement dates, and/or thinking of dropping a class please contact Renee Garcia (Financial Aid Technician) at 530-242-7708 or email at rgarcia@shastacollege.edu.​ ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
