All financial aid funds, except Federal Work Study funds, are applied directly to your HCC account established through the HCC Business Office. The account includes educational fees, HCC housing deposits, meal plans, books and other charges. Usually one-half of your aid is credited to your account during the fall semester and the other half is credited during the spring semester.
In order for your financial aid funds to be applied to your HCC account, you must have:
As you earn Federal Work Study funds, you will be paid through the institution’s biweekly payroll system. Pay is either directly deposited to your bank account or a check can be picked up in the Human Resources Office.
If your financial aid exceeds your institutional charges, the balance is paid to you by check or by direct deposit into your bank account. Direct deposit can be set up through Dragon Zone. Refunds generated from a PLUS will be mailed to the parent borrower unless otherwise specified. Refund Dates will appear at the bottom of your statement of account in Dragon Zone. A link to our schedule of refund dates is found below.Refund Dates
