Tuition & Financial Aid: Financial aid has been difficult but overall everything I have had to pay for has been explained and letters sent out showing what was owed, why and where the fees add up which was very nice.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Financial aid is like a stew—those who come first have the greatest chance of getting decent award letters; latecomers have to scrape for leftovers. For students serious about getting financial aid, filling out FAFSA (the Free Application for Federal Student Aid) early and triple-checking for accuracy can be a huge help. The staff at HCC is helpful and can help determine the price differences for out-of-state/county students. Prices vary by location, with out-of-state students paying more; the difference is available in the catalog on the financial aid website. Several scholarship and student work opportunities are available—again, latecomers have a greatly decreased chance of getting anything. Applications for student jobs are available at the human resources office. The HCC website is a great source of information on school financial aid.

To qualify for aid at all, students have to have a high school degree or GED (General Education Development test), or pass the Ability to Benefit test (available to take at the campus testing center), which features questions from a variety of subjects. Once students are accepted and school costs have been decided, setting up payment plans is simple. Payment plans at HCC are completed online, and the financial aid department is willing and able to help.

Facts & Statistics

Tips for Getting Aid
  • Apply early; the earlier you request it, the better the chances are that you'll get a decent package. Latecomers, however, are left scraping the bottom for leftovers.
  • Fill out FAFSA early and triple-check it for mistakes to avoid losing some or even all of your financial aid.
