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, Stafford 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. Detailed information about financial aid is available in the Financial Aid Office.
Students entering into a payment plan with FHTC will work with NelNet, a convenient budget planning company. The student must pay a $25.00 per semester, non-refundable NelNet Enrollment Fee and pay a percentage of the balance due at the time of enrollment for the payment plan. Tuition and fee payments will be automatically deducted on the 5th or 20th of each month from a checking or savings account. A student may also have their payment charged to their credit card. Students may sign up for the payment plan and receive additional information in the Business Office.
Students that are receiving funding through third party billing (WIA, SRS, etc.) are often required by the agency to submit verification of attendance and grades. It is the student's responsibility to request necessary verification from either their instructor or the Dean of Enrollment Management and provide it to the requesting agency.
