Financial aid at ACT


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 application form.


Financial Aid Awards


The financial aid program grants awards to both local and international undergraduate and graduate students. Financial aid grants will be determined according to student or family financial need, as appropriate, and academic merit within university budget limitations. Financial need is a percentage reduction in the ACT tuition fees.




In order to be considered for the Institutional Financial Aid program, certain requirements must be met:

  • Be enrolled or accepted for enrollment.
  • Be degree-seeking.
  • Demonstrate financial need through submitting the financial aid application.




ACT seeks to enroll students who will enable it to achieve its vision of becoming the premier, internationally-oriented, English-language college of higher education in the Balkan Region. Our goal is to promote innovative learning practices and humanitarian values and provide our students with an educational environment that fuels their passion for learning and develops a greater sense of global citizenship and social responsibility.


Our admissions philosophy is focused on drawing student to ACT who will become active members of the campus community and help us move the campus toward its primary goals for innovative and interactive learning. Each application for admission is carefully reviewed to assess the student's academic ability and willingness to be part of a vibrant community atmosphere. We want to ensure that every student who enrolls at ACT will uphold the standards of integrity and personal responsibility we expect of each member of the broader Anatolia learning community.
