You are considered a Guest Student when you are pursuing a degree or certificate at another school (considered your home institution) and taking course(s) at HACC for the sole purpose of transferring the course(s) back to your (home) school.
Guest Students are not eligible to receive financial aid from HACC. However, through a CONSORTIUM AGREEMENT, you may be able to receive aid from your (home) school for the course(s) you are taking at HACC. You should contact the Financial Aid Office at your (home) school and ask about a Consortium Agreement.
