Financial Aid Award & Policies

New Loan Information

In our efforts to help students understand and monitor their total student loan indebtedness, the HON CC FA office is not auto offering loans for the 2018-19 award year.  Students who are interested in borrowing student loans can submit the loan request [PDF] to our office for review.

Once your application has been reviewed and your eligibility has been determined, you will be notified through your UH email account advising you to view your financial aid award via MyUH Services. Please read the email and financial aid award carefully. A financial aid award is based on the following:

  • Amount of need as determined by FAFSA;
  • Amount eligible for;
  • Availability of federal, state, and private funds
  • Full-time enrollment status at our campus (unless noted otherwise). If your enrollment status changes after you have been awarded financial aid, you will need to complete a Change of Enrollment Form or Dual Enrollment Form (for students taking classes at another campus).

For a complete description of your financial aid award, please read through the All You Need To Know About Your Financial Aid Award [PDF]
