ACTCM believes that the cost of a high-quality education should not be a deterrent to prospective applicants. In recognition of the concern students and families that have with finding adequate resources to meet these costs, our financial aid program is designed to make ACTCM affordable to those students we admit. Approximately 80 percent of our students receive some form of aid from federal, state, and institutional sources.
