You CAN Do It! Can-Themed Recycling Bins Roll Out on Campus

As part of Campus Sustainability Month, the Office of Sustainability has partnered with Ball Beverage Packaging to bring the Can Bin Project to AUC. The project aims to raise awareness about beverage can recycling rates and to reduce AUC’s carbon footprint.

Aluminum cans are 100% recyclable and can be recycled an infinite number of times with no loss of quality. Nearly 75% of all aluminum produced is still used today, so why waste a can when you can recycle?

Recycle your cans at one of three new can recycling bins, located at Bartlett Plaza, Americana Food Court and Quick 24 and receive a coupon for a free soda! Talk to a sustainability representative at one of the bins on October 10, 17, 24 and 31 during assembly hour.

Be on the lookout for more collaborations from the Office of Sustainability all month long!

AUC Recertification to Participate in Federal Student Aid Programs

On September 18, 2018 the US Department of Education (DOE) approved the recertification of AUC to participate in the Federal Student Aid programs. AUC’s eligibility to give federal loans to its students expired on September 30, 2017. Accordingly, AUC applied for recertification 90 days prior to the expiration date to maintain its eligibility. Since then, the Office of Student Financial Affairs and Scholarships has been working with the DOE reviewers to provide them with all needed information and streamline the process of getting recertified. Prior to that, the Federal Financial Aid team has worked extensively with campus-wide departments to have all policies in place, ensure that AUC is in compliance with federal rules and regulations and make sure the website includes all US loan information.

We are proud that the AUC is recertified to participate in Federal Student Aid programs until March 31, 2021.
