Borrow responsibly! Borrowing responsibly includes borrowing only what you need to pay your education expenses AND what you can realistically afford to repay when you leave school. In order to minimize your student loan debt, ACHS strongly encourages all students to borrow only as much as they need to cover course tuition and materials.

Qualifying students may also be eligible to take advantage of Loan Deferment & Tax Credits.
