Statement of Good Practice
The ATC FAO adheres to the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators’ Statement of Good Practice in the administration of all programs and in the disclosure of information to other parties.
Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
A student or parent of a dependent student has the right to inspect and review financial aid records pertaining to the student. This information may not be disclosed except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without written consent.
Principles of Financial Aid
Students who have satisfactory academic records and are in need of aid may qualify for financial assistance. Although the primary responsibility for financing an education remains with students and their families, ATC participates in several programs designed to supplement the family contribution in order to meet the financial need of the student.
The primary principles of administering financial aid programs are:
  • Financial aid is designed to provide financial help to students who need additional resources to pursue their education and career objectives.
  • Aid may take the form of a job, grant, scholarship, or a combination of any of these.
  • Aid is based upon the student’s ability to make satisfactory progress according to the college’s Financial Aid Standards of Academic Progress (SAP), and
  • Financial aid can be reviewed and cancelled at any time due to changes in the financial or in the academic status of the student as determined by the FAO.
