Financial Aid

General Information

Howard College provides financial assistance to help make the benefits of higher education available to qualified students. Federal and state grants, scholarships, federal student loans, and federal and state work-study programs are administered through the Financial Aid Office. Students requesting financial aid must have their eligibility established each year. Financial aid files received before March 15 for the fall semester or October 1 for the spring semester will receive priority. The deadline for the fall semester is July 1 and October 1 for the spring semester. Information received after the deadline may not be processed in time to pay tuition and fees for the upcoming semester. Students needing assistance in completing the financial aid application should see their campus financial aid representative.

Students are strongly encouraged to review the terms and conditions of financial aid and to direct questions to the Financial Aid Office concerning eligibility criteria, terms, rights, privileges, cost of attendance, refund policy for aid recipients, method of financial aid payment, satisfactory academic progress, and other questions related to the financial aid process. More specific information and details on student financial aid can be found in the Catalog.

Federal Student Aid, an office of the U.S Department of Education, ensures that all eligible Americans benefit from federal financial assistance. Contact information is below.
