Undergraduate Financial Aid & Scholarships

ACT strives to be not only the 1st choice, but also an affordable choice for the education of youth from Greece, Southeast Europe, the US and beyond. To that end, the College awards financial aid to a substantial number of students in each entering class. Financial aid awards aim to make quality education affordable to students in need, particularly during these difficult times, and also reward a student’s academic accomplishments and potential. The American College of Thessaloniki has developed a well established program of financial aid to assist students in their quest for a college education. This program ensures that no student should be deprived from attending ACT because of financial strains.

All applicants who would like to be considered for financial aid should complete the

ACT financial aid form


Undergraduates receive grants in the form of percentage reduction in the tuition fee costs. This amount will most likely remain constant throughout the course of study at ACT as long as the student is eligible for financial aid unless otherwise notified.

To remain eligible for the financial aid award, undergraduate students must meet the following academic criteria:

  • Maintain a good academic standing based on the award level received.
  • Maintain a full-time status (12 credit hours per semester or above); unless you’re a graduating senior and that’s your last semester.

External Scholarship Resources
