Costs and Financial Aid

Welcome to Henderson Community College!

An education here at HCC is an especially good value. Tuition costs are very affordable, especially for residents of Kentucky and those from select counties in Indiana and Illinois. In addition, we offer a wide range of financial aid programs. Please click on the “Types of Aid” link to the left for more information.

Summer Financial Aid at HCC

Interested in taking summer classes at HCC?   Aid is available!  Student who qualify may receive Pell Grants and student loans during the summer term.  Please see the details below, and contact Financial Aid with any questions you may have.      

Summer Pell Grants

If you received a Pell Grant for fall and/or spring you may be eligible for additional grant funds for the summer term. Students with a remaining portion from fall or spring (not enrolled full-time in both terms) will receive the grant at all enrollment levels.  The grant can be received for one or more classes.  If you have exhausted your eligibility (full-time for both fall and spring), you must be enrolled at least half-time (6 credit hours) to receive the grant.  Students must also meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards, and be taking classes that count towards their program of study.

Summer Direct Student Loans

Note:  The online summer loan request will be available by May 1st.  Students with remaining loan eligibility for the year may request funds for the summer term.  You must be enrolled at least half-time (6 credit hours), meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards, and taking classes that count in your program of study.  To make a loan request, click on Student Self-Service, the Financial Aid tile, and then Loan Request from the left-hand menu.  Please contact financial aid with any questions regarding summer loan eligibility.
