More than half of all HCC students receive financial aid from federal, state, and private sources. The Financial Aid Office is here to help you complete and submit your paperwork. You can even apply and submit federal financial aid forms directly from our office.
The vast majority of financial aid funds at Holyoke Community College come from federal and state programs for which eligibility is need-based. Students applying for financial aid are considered for a wide variety of aid programs. Students must reapply for this aid each academic year. State-funded programs require the student (and parent) to have been Massachusetts residents for at least one year before the start of the school year. All awards are subject to the availability of funds and changes in federal, state, and college regulations, policies, and procedures.
