ACOM Housing Financial Aid Q&A

We know you have a long to-do list as you prepare to embark on your first year of medical school so we want to make the ACOM housing process is as simple and straightforward as possible.

Q: How can I pay for on campus housing when financial aid isn’t distributed until September?
A:  Come live at ACOM’s on-campus community, Summerfield Square, where we work with students and ACOM officials to make sure every student gets the most out of their medical school career. 

Q: Does Summerfield Square require proof of income?
A: No, we will accept your financial aid as income. No other Dothan, AL apartment community will do this and will require you to have a cosigner (in other words, your parents need to sign your lease with you).

Q: What if my financial aid has not come in yet?
A: We will allow you to defer your housing fees, with no penalty or late fee, for as many as two months per semester or until your financial aid arrives.

Q: So nothing is due upfront?
A: No, not entirely. You will be required to pay your pro-rated housing fee for the month of July (typically two weeks’ housing fee) in order to receive your keys but will not be required to pay anything else out of pocket until you receive your financial aid.

Q: How do I sign up for this free service?
A: On move in day you will receive a packet and deferral information is included there. You must sign the appropriate paperwork by July 31st in order to be eligible.

If you have any other questions about how the deferral process works, would like more information on the ACOM housing community or have a general inquiry, please contact us by any of the following means:

P 334-503-3660

or stop by and see us in person Monday – Friday, 8:30am – 5pm!
