Deadlines

2018-19 Deadlines

FAFSA Deadline

The school must receive the student's processed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with the student's expected family contribution no later than the student's last date of enrollment for 2018-19.   

MASSGrant Deadline

In order to meet the State MASSGrant deadline, the student's FAFSA must reach the federal processor before May 1, 2018.  

HCC Priority Deadline

To receive the best possible aid award for fall, students should complete the FAFSA by May 1, 2018 and submit all other required documentation to the Financial Aid Office by June 30, 2018. Returning HCC students should also register for classes by June 30, 2018.  HCC typically has funding available to award the best possible aid to new students who begin enrollment in spring. The deadlines may be adjusted based on the availability of funds. New students beginning enrollment in spring should complete the FAFSA before November 15, 2018 and complete all requirements by December 15, 2018.

HCC asks that documents be submitted within two weeks of the initial request for the information. The latest that verification can be completed is published in the Federal Register. This deadline for 2018-19 will be in late September, or 120 days after the last day of the student's enrollment, whichever is earlier.

Verification is considered to be complete when the student has submitted all requested documentation and the school has a valid FAFSA (one on which all the information is accurate and complete). This includes the processing of any corrections that may be needed to the FAFSA data. Note that the corrections deadline is also published in the Federal Register and is generally earlier than the verification deadline, therefore in some cases it may be too late to submit corrections when the verification documents are received. Failure to complete verification will result in the following:

  1. No additional financial aid will be processed or paid to the student.
  2. Federal work-study funding will be terminated.
  3. Any grant aid paid to the student for 2018-19 will be forfeited and the student will be required to return the funds.
  4. Federal Direct Loans not yet paid to the student will be canceled.  

Loan Deadline

A student loan must be originated with the Federal Department of Education prior to the date the student drops below half-time. Entrance Counseling and Master Promissory Notes should be completed while you are still in attendance at least half time. There may be situations when a loan can still pay when these are completed after your enrollment ceases or drops below half time; however, it depends on numerous factors.  

Payment Deadline

Generally a student ceases to be eligible for financial aid once the student is no longer enrolled.  In some limited cases the school can pay financial aid to a student who is no longer enrolled, if the conditions for a late disbursement are met.

Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeal Deadline

The deadline for a student to submit an appeal in a term they are attending is one week before the semester is scheduled to end. 

Federal Workstudy

Federal workstudy is generally awarded to students who meet the HCC Priority Deadline and are otherwise eligible. Students interested in beginning work in the summer term, and who are not enrolled in that summer term, may need to have their 2019-2020 FAFSA completed prior to the priority deadline to ensure availability of funds. Students enrolled in summer are required to have a 2018-2019 FAFSA on file. 

Request for Re-evaluation Due to Unusual Circumstances Deadline

For a student to be considered for a financial aid adjustment due to a change in circumstances, the request for a re-evaluation and proper documentation must be submitted while the student is enrolled for the 2018-19 academic year.


2017-18 Deadlines

FAFSA Deadline

The school must receive the student's processed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with the student's expected family contribution no later than the student's last date of enrollment for 2017-18.   

MASSGrant Deadline

In order to meet the State MASSGrant deadline, the student's FAFSA must reach the federal processor before May 1, 2017.  

HCC Priority Deadline

To receive the best possible aid award for fall, students should complete the FAFSA by May 1, 2017 and submit all other required documentation to the Financial Aid Office by June 30, 2017. Returning HCC students should also register for classes by June 30, 2017.  HCC typically has funding available to award the best possible aid to new students who begin enrollment in spring. The deadlines may be adjusted based on the availability of funds. New students beginning enrollment in spring should complete the FAFSA before November 15, 2017 and complete all requirements by December 15, 2017.

HCC asks that documents be submitted within two weeks of the initial request for the information. The latest that verification can be completed is published in the Federal Register. This deadline for 2017-18 is September 23, 2018, or 120 days after the last day of the student's enrollment, whichever is earlier.

Verification is considered to be complete when the student has submitted all requested documentation and the school has a valid FAFSA (one on which all the information is accurate and complete). This includes the processing of any corrections that may be needed to the FAFSA data.
