4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The college has guidelines that are pretty clear and understandable. The website as well as financial office has resources and pamphlets for student and parents to review and step-by-step instruction on what needs to be done.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Financial aid was very helpful financially. It covered all of my classes and I had remaining money for my books.

College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I did not apply for financial aid so I cannot answer that portion of the question. I feel like I have earned the value of education that I have paid for. My teachers are knowledgeable for the most part in their field of study.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The textbook at the bookstore are expensive. Financial Aid doesn't give sufficient refunds for students or Texas pell grant.

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Very willing to help people in need of financial aid, and prices are very in reach.

There are fees for tuition, laboratory classes, and supplies, and sometimes these all add up to a bit more than students expect. However, most students feel the education they are receiving is worth paying for. The Financial Aid Office can help students find sources of funding, but the process can be complicated at times. Make sure to take your tax forms and your parents' tax forms (if you are a dependent) with you when you speak with an aid adviser. You'll also need a photo ID, like a driver's license. There are plenty of brochures and handouts available that answer common questions. About 15% of students received aid in the 2010 school year. There are plenty of types of aid to help you pay for school: loans, Federal Pell Grants, program grants, academic excellence grants, scholarships, and more. You are often issued an HCC debit Eagle Card, which lets you use money from your financial aid package like a debit card. There are ATMs available on campus. You can always check your student aid online and call a customer service hotline if there are any problems. The offices are often open for at least 10 hours a day, so there is plenty of time to visit.
