Federal Grants

Federal Pell Grant
The Federal Pell Grant is based on an eligible student's "Expected Family Contribution" and the number of credits enrolled in at HACC. Students must complete the FAFSA each academic year in order for their EFC to be calculated.  Students are limited to no more than 6 years of full-time Pell in their lifetime.

DEADLINE: Students can submit the FAFSA anytime during their period of enrollment for Pell Grant consideration.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG) SEOG is available to students with exceptional need and is awarded as part of the total financial aid package. Application is made to the College by submitting the FAFSA.  A student's eligibility and the amount awarded may vary from year to year depending on institutional funding.

DEADLINE: Because funds are limited, preference is given to those whose FAFSA is filed by April 15th.
