COVID-19 Financial Aid Update: How to Reach Financial Aid

Financial aid is available to help eligible part-time and full-time students pay for college. It can be a combination of scholarships, grants, loans and Work-Study. Since HCC is multiple start dates, we accept financial aid applications throughout the year. Follow the steps below to apply.  

During this time, we understand you need immediate up-to-date information regarding your financial aid eligibility. Although the Office of Financial Aid suspended all in-person service, we are pleased to report that you are still able to reach us by phone, email, in-person and virtual advising.
