Financial Aid & Scholarships

The FHTC financial aid program is available to help students who need financial assistance to continue their education. While the financing of education is primarily the responsibility of the students and their families, financial aid programs take into account the wide variety of financial circumstances that can affect a student’s ability to pay for education. The financial aid program consists of Pell Grants, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants, Work-Study, Direct Loans, a large number of locally funded scholarships and Foundation scholarships.

The Financial Aid Office welcomes inquiries throughout the school year. In many cases, students who did not apply for financial aid prior to matriculation may qualify during the academic year to receive financial aid through grants, work-study or scholarships.

Students receiving financial aid must have applied and be admitted to the college, must be degree-seeking, must be enrolled in classes that will count toward the degree or certificate, and must be in good standing (eligible to re-enroll). In addition, students must have a GED, High School Diploma, or have been home-schooled. Previous college transcripts are required. All transcripts must be submitted to Student Services. Students may not receive aid if they fail to make Satisfactory Academic Progress in previous semesters.

Complete the federal aid application at beginning October 1st for the next school year.

More detailed information and forms regarding the Federal Financial Aid Process can be found on the Paying for Your Education page.
