Heartland Community College (HCC) offers a variety of financial opportunities.
To determine your eligibility, we compare the cost of attending HCC and expected financial contributions of you and/or your parent(s) and then we factor in your academic standing.
After you have been accepted as a student in an eligible curriculum at HCC and have demonstrated need, we try to meet that need by offering aid. This aid can consist of a grant, an on/off campus job, and/or a loan. Financial aid awards must be applied to educational expenses such as tuition, fees, books, supplies, transportation, child care, or other educational costs.
- Find out how to apply. The Heartland Community College Financial Aid Office is here to help.
- Fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
- Apply for financial aid early. The earlier you start, the easier it will be. Read a message from the Financial Aid Director.
- View priority deadlines & refund schedules to help you understand the process.
After you apply, The Financial Aid Office communicates with you through Heartland email only. Make sure to check it regularly.
