You May be Eligible for the Alaska Performance Scholarship or Alaska Education Grant-- Here's How to Find Out!

You may have heard that test scores to qualify for the Alaska Performance Scholarship (APS) have been waved for the class of 2021 due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. This means that more Alaska students may be eligible for the APS, if they met the course curriculum and minimum 2.5 GPA requirements. Do you think you might be one of those students or know of someone who might?

If you think you may qualify for the Alaska Performance Scholarship or the Alaska Education Grant (AEG), you can check your status on the Alaska Student Aid Portal (ASAP).

What is ASAP?

ASAP is the Alaska Student Aid Portal. It provides you with secure online access to track your Alaska Performance Scholarship and Alaska Education Grant eligibility and usage. The best part is you can track it 24/7 without having to call anyone if you are trying to find out after business hours. With ASAP you receive up-to-date information on the status of your APS and AEG, allowing you to make informed decisions based on the availability of funding.

How does it work?

Each year after you submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), simply log on to ASAP to verify that your FAFSA was received. You can also find out if you are eligible for an APS or AEG award, and where your money is in the process of being applied to your college or training account.

Get Started Now—It’s Easy and Secure.

  1. Login or create a student account at acpe.alaska.gov/ASAP using your name date of birth, and Social Security Number.
  2. ACPE will send you an activation email.
  3. Activate your account by clicking the link in the activation email, login and then click on the information you would like to view.

Remember, June 30th is the priority deadline to submit your FAFSA, which is the application for the Alaska Performance Scholarship and Alaska Education Grant. For more information, visit our website at acpe.alaska.gov
