More than half of all HCC students receive financial aid from federal, state, and private sources.
In keeping with the recommendations of the CDC and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, HCC is limiting campus foot traffic in order to maximize social distancing and keep our staff and students healthy. We are moving our student support services to phone, email, and other remote interactive options, including Zoom, Webex, and Google chat.

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.
Applying for financial aid is easier than you think – and the HCC Financial Aid Office is here to help.
