Once you have completed your FAFSA, you will receive notification from the U.S. Department of Education saying that your application has been processed. If you filed your FAFSA electronically, you should receive an e-mail notification within 72 hours.

Applicants selected for verification may be required to submit documentation to the Hutchinson Community College Financial Aid Office in support of the data supplied on the FAFSA.
