New Way to Access Personalized Financial Aid Updates

Students can now access all your financial aid messages through the Message Center in your Student Center. This one-stop platform will serve as a reliable source for all future communications related to your financial aid. We highly recommend that you check the Message Center regularly to stay updated on your financial aid status.

 

To access the Message Center, please follow these three steps:

  1. Visit https://myeagle.hccs.edu or scan the QR code.
  2. Select the “Student Sign In” Tile and log in using your HCC student login. If you need help with resetting your password, please call 713.718.8800.
  3. Select the Message Center tile, to view all your financial aid-related messages and notifications.

 

One of the first notifications you will see in your Message Center will be that you have been awarded financial aid for Fall. To learn more about how to view and accept all your eligible financial aid, complete enrollment onboarding and register for courses, please follow the steps above to check your Message Center.
