Deposit Deadline has been extended to June 1, 2020 for the Fall 2020 term.
We understand that as a result of a national response to COVID-19, students may find themselves with limited access to the resources needed to assist in making their college decision. We want to make sure that students have the time needed to be comfortable with their financial aid package, housing options, and academic programs that are all associated with selecting a college.
All admitted students and their parents are invited to come to campus April 4, 2020 for Austin College Experience (ACE). During this full-day Saturday event, students will learn more about academics and student life—while experiencing the campus environment and atmosphere firsthand.
Parents will hear presentations on the transitions from high school to college and learn more about the Austin College living and learning community. Financial aid staff also will be available to speak with parents.
Come; ask questions; meet faculty, current students, and other future ‘Roos; and discover opportunities. Be part of the Austin College Experience!
To be considered for financial aid, in addition to any Austin College scholarships received, you must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (Austin College FAFSA code #003543) and have the report sent to Austin College. You can find more details on our financial aid page. Please note that, per federal regulations, the family must have a FAFSA on file to be considered for educational loans, including the federal PLUS loan.
Pay your deposit online via your student hub using a credit card or check, alternatively you may mail in a check to the Office of Admission for your $350.00 deposit. You may make your matriculation deposit* at your earliest convenience. The deposit is refundable until the beginning of class in August.
Then complete and sign the Matriculation Agreement and Commitment to Academic Integrity form**.
* Once the applicant enrolls, $150 of the deposit is used as a non-refundable registration fee; the remaining $200 of the matriculation deposit is held as a general deposit and is used to satisfy charges for loss or damage (including unusual cleaning costs to any College property) for which the student is responsible. The deposit will be refunded, less charges for amounts due, after graduation.
** Acceptance of College Principles: Austin College is committed to the ideals of community membership, individual responsibility, shared goals and expectations, and the highest standards of integrity. Signing the Commitment to Academic Integrity indicates an understanding of our general educational approach and a willingness to abide by the Austin College principles.
