Tuition & Financial Aid: The price is great, I didn't get a lot of financial aid this year, but it covered everything! Thankful for that.

Tuition & Financial Aid: they are pretty straightforward, it comes in about a month and you get grants too, so they help u out with anything you need.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Since it is a community college, the tuition is okay. However, I would not mind not having to take out loans every semester.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is extremely cheap and most of the students who attend receive financial aid. I am about to finish my sophomore year of college and I have no debt thanks to this school. This is a very rare thing in my day so I am very happy with the school in this way. The financial aid process is definitely a nuisance as it is with any school. Financial aid completely covered my first year though so all the hassle I went through is worth the struggle. The thing I had most difficulty with was getting document proof of residence and state tuition. The actual applications do not take too much time, but scrounging around for these documents as proof can take forever (especially if you have to order them). I would recommend going online and understanding all the necessary criteria before going to the school and waiting hours for someone to tell you that you do not have everything you need. Especially at the beginning of the semester, it is not uncommon to wait hours like at the DMV to speak to a counselor or financial aid representative.

Tuition & Financial Aid: You are able to make payments with your financial card even before it is disbursed. The also have a financial aide department that can answer any question you have about your up-coming financial aide or your current.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
