HCC offers a variety of scholarships that is as diverse as our student body. Whether you are a full time or part time student, seeking vocational training or looking to transfer to a university, we have a scholarship that you may qualify for. Scholarships are gifts and do not have to be repaid. Most are given to eligible students with no strings attached. Some may require the student to maintain a certain level of academic success.
Grants are gifts that are provided by the government to help pay for educational expenses. Grants do not need to be repaid as long as enrollment criteria are maintained. Grants are typically based on financial need as assessed by the federal methodology .
An education loan is a form of financial aid that must be repaid, with interest. Eligibility usually, but not always, is based on financial need. Limits are set on how much financial assistance students can receive in the form of federal student loans. Federal law sets the maximum interest rates and fees charged on these loans.
If you are willing to work we have a vast number of employment opportunities. HCC not only has Federal Work Study Employment that is need-based but also other on campus job opportunities.
