Depending upon available resources and criteria for eligibility, undergraduate students may receive financial aid in the form of scholarships (tuition awards), work study and loans. In certain circumstances, staff employment, and a limited number of positions may also be available.
AUCC currently has two academic scholarships. They are:
The Anna Jane Awo-Ashong Anim (nee Golightly) Memorial Scholarship
This award was established by the family of Mrs. Anim. The annual prize of the value of GHS 1,000 and a Bible is awarded to the female graduating student with the highest GPA among the graduating class and who is of good character. This award embodies Mrs. Anim’s high intellect and commitment to high moral values.
Kojo Yankah Academic Scholarship
This award was established by AUCC Founder Honorable Kojo Yankah for the entering student in the School of Communication Studies with the highest score.
Student Loan Trust (SLT)
The Student Loan Trust (SLT) programme offers loans to students. Under the SLT Programme, the Ghana Government makes loans available to students in tertiary institutions. SLT operates an office at AUCC. The applicant’s eligibility and annual loan amounts are determined by SLT. Applicants must be in good academic standing at the time of the request. Loan request forms may be obtained from the Office of SLT located on the ground floor at AUCC. The completed request must be submitted to the Office of the Student Loan Trust.
To be eligible for a student loan, a student must, as a minimum, be admitted to and enrolled in an undergraduate programme and pursuing a degree programme. Students in non-degree, conditional admission, or probation status are not eligible for a loan.
