Tuition & Aid

As the cost of college continues to soar, more and more students are choosing to begin their college careers at a community college. Holyoke Community College offers an outstanding education at fees that are among the lowest in the Commonwealth—and scholarships can bring the cost even lower.

On these pages you'll find everything you need to know about the cost of attending HCC, as well as information about applying for financial aid, the different types of aid, payment plans and more. As an HCC student, you'll also have free membership in SALT, a debt management and financial education program. SALT offers practical money management strategies for budgeting and credit management, a personal loan tracking dashboard, access to jobs and internship listings, and benefits that help you save and spend smart.
