Apply for an ACHS Adult Scholarship

ACHS offers a scholarship for adult students in the form of a one-time $1000 tuition scholarship (not to exceed 35% of tuition for the student’s enrolled program). The College awards up to 10 of these scholarships each year and selects recipients based on the following criteria:

  • Acceptance for admission to a program consisting of at least six semester credits;
  • Must be at least 19 years of age and have a state-approved high school diploma or equivalency (GED);
  • Have a demonstrated record of academic success [If a new applicant at ACHS, please provide your previous College transcripts.]
  • If awarded, the scholarship is pro-rated per course, granting a scholarship of up to 35% of tuition up to the maximum award of $1000. Enrolled students must maintain satisfactory academic progress for continued award of the scholarship up to $1000. If a course is dropped during the semester, the scholarship will be pro-rated accordingly.
