The Financial Aid Access Code (FAAC) will provide a 2 week temporary code for students who experience a delay in receiving their financial aid. Please note, the Financial Aid Access Code DOES NOT add an additional 2 weeks to a student’s account. When students purchase a regular Student Access Code, the start date of their account is the date the student first starting using ALEKS with the FAAC code, NOT the date when the account was extended with the purchased code.

Please follow these steps to obtain a FAAC code for your class:

  1. In your Class View select Class Administration.
  2. Select Financial Aid Code
  3. Click on the Request a Financial Aid Access Code.

(If this link is not available in the Administrator Center, please contact ALEKS Customer Support to have it enabled for your college.)

Switch to a new class

This option appears when you have time remaining in your ALEKS subscription and would like to switch the remaining time to a new class. Before switching, you will need the 10-character class code of your new class. After switching, you will be in your new class and may need to complete an ALEKS Knowledge Check.
