Apply for Financial Aid
Applying for financial aid is an annual process and a new application must be completed for each academic year. You are encouraged to apply for financial aid as early as possible to maximize your eligibility.
- The FAFSA is available in October each year to apply for the following academic year.
- HCC's priority deadline to complete the FAFSA is March 1st each year. If you miss the March 1 priority deadline, still apply for 2018-2019 financial aid, even after your classes begin.
Financial Aid Services assists eligible students with direct educational costs including tuition and fees, as well as indirect educational costs such as books, transportation and other miscellaneous expenses. Financial aid funds are available in the forms of grants, scholarships, loans, and work-study.
