Summer Financial Aid

Foreveryone, Anytime.

Registration for summer will open as of April 8, 2020. To help you make your decision about enrolling, we’re sharing information about aid eligibility, requirements and options for summer sessions. 


NEW PROCESS FOR SUMMER 2020

In previous semesters, students were required to submit a form to request funds for summer. That is no longer required.

Students who have a 19-20 FAFSA application on file and are eligible to receive summer financial aid will receive an email notification about their award, and the next steps. 

DON’T WAIT. ENROLL TODAY.

If you have a 19-20 FAFSA on file and no outstanding Financial Aid To-do List items, the Financial Aid Office will hold your summer classes until May 15, 2020.

We strongly encourage you to enroll in classes while you await a decision for your summer aid eligibility

Fall/Spring FULL-TIME Students: Summer Pell Grant Requirements

In the past, students who were full-time in the fall and spring were not eligible to receive Pell Grants in the summer. However, the great news is that with Year-round Pell Grants, you may be able to receive Pell to fund your summer courses! It is our hope, that this will help you graduate sooner and with less debt.

 

WANT YEAR-ROUND PELL FOR SUMMER? HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO.

  • Enroll in 6 credit hours that count toward the degree plan for your eligible program.

  • Submit 19-20 FAFSA and not have any incomplete items on Financial Aid To-do List

  • Be actively pursuing a degree or certificate program at HCC. Students who are enrolled at HCC for the summer term only (not enrolled in Fall or Spring semesters), are not eligible to receive aid. 
     
  • Meet Satisfactory Academic Progress standards and be in good academic standing.

 

DON’T WAIT. ENROLL TODAY.

If you have a 19-20 FAFSA on file and no outstanding Financial Aid To-do List items, the Financial Aid Office will hold your summer classes until May 15, 2020

We strongly encourage you to enroll in classes while you await a decision for your summer aid eligibility. Again, you must be enrolled in 6 credit hours to take advantage of Summer Pell. 

Please know that funds are not guaranteed.
