Central Alabama/Southern Union Information

Central Alabama Community College, Chattahoochee Valley Community College, and Southern Union State Community College are excited to share that we are combining forces to become a regional community college so that we may
ENHANCE student opportunities and student success,
SUPPORT workforce development, and
ENGAGE the lifelong learning needs of our communities, businesses, and industries.

Students attending the newly consolidated regional community college will continue to receive an excellent and affordable education as well as outstanding training opportunities to gain the skills needed for today's in-demand careers. In fact, students will benefit the most from expanded resources and multiplied possibilities! 
In keeping with the vision of the Alabama Community College System, affordable pathways to quality education and training will continue to be offered to all students with financial aid options available to students who qualify.  
As we move forward with the consolidation of our three colleges, specific steps will be taken to ensure a smooth transition for our students, beginning with the consolidation of a federal student aid code that must be included on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
·         Effective immediately, students should ADD the federal school code, 001007, on the 2016-2017 FAFSA.
·         Students who have already completed the 2016-2017 FAFSA should go back in on the website to make a correction and ADD the federal school code, 001007, to the FAFSA.
·         If you have already listed Central Alabama Community College, 001007, on your 2016-2017 FAFSA, no further action is needed at this time.
Please note that this federal school code is currently assigned to Central Alabama Community College; therefore, this college will appear on your FAFSA as a selected school regardless of the location you plan to attend. Once the consolidation of the three colleges has final approval by the Department of Education, the college name will automatically update to the new regional college name. 
While sharing the commitment of the Alabama Community College System to provide a unified system of institutions, our promise to you is to continue the provision of comprehensive and high quality services as we create our consolidated regional college. 
Stay tuned for additional updates. We look forward to seeing you in the Fall!
