Step-by-Step Guide for Returning Students

Step 1: Reapply

Degree-seeking students who have not been enrolled for the past 3 semesters are returning students who will need to follow readmissions steps. 

  • Reactivate your student account | Visit myeagle.hccs.edu; select Student Sign-in; and follow the instructions for a first-time user.
  • After you sign in to your account (myeagle.hccs.edu) you will see My Checklist, which provides step-by-step instructions to complete the admissions process.

 

Step 2: Financial Aid Application

All students (part-time and full-time) should apply for financial aid immediately after applying for admissions to HCC. By submitting a financial aid application, you may qualify for a combination of over 10 types of grants, loans, institutional scholarships, and work-study funds that can help cover the cost of college.

Filling out a financial aid application is the first step in learning your options to pay for collegeAlthough HCC has multiple start dates and accepts financial aid applications throughout the year, submitting an application early will give you a better chance of securing aid. 


SUBMITTING THE CORRECT FINANCIAL AID APPLICATION


Depending on your citizenship status, you would have to either fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA).

  • Citizens or permanent residents of the US trust territories should complete the FAFSA to determine federal, state and institutional (HCC) aid eligibility.
  • Undocumented Students should complete the TASFA to determine state and institutional (HCC) aid eligibility.
  • F1 Students should complete the TASFA to determine institutional (HCC) aid eligibility.


FAFSA | WHY QUALIFYING STUDENTS SHOULD APPLY?


HCC has multiple start dates and accepts financial aid applications throughout the year, submitting the FAFSA early will give you a better chance of securing grants, loans, work-study, and emergency aid funds you may be eligible to receive. Many part-time and full-time students who complete the application process receive some form of federal, state, or institutional financial aid, so you should always fill out a FAFSA. Not filling out the FAFSA could mean you are leaving federal, state, or institutional aid unclaimed.

  • To fill out the FAFSA, visit fafsa.gov.
  • For assistance with completing the FAFSA, please visit hccs.edu/finaidcontact to connect with the financial aid department.
  • FAFSA Guide | Visit our webpage that details everything you need to fill out the FAFSA.


TASFA | WHY QUALIFYING STUDENTS SHOULD APPLY?


Submitting the TASFA early will give qualifying part-time and full-time students a better chance of securing state grants, work-study, or institutional aid they may be eligible to receive. Not filling out the TASFA could mean you are leaving state or institutional aid unclaimed.
