A College for our Community!

A college education is an excellent investment in your future. A degree, diploma, or certificate will pay off throughout your career—in higher salaries, better professional opportunities, and personal satisfaction.

No-Show Process

Federal regulations require HCTC to verify that students receiving financial aid are attending or participating in each class. If a student is not attending or participating in a class, he or she is not eligiable to receive financial aid for that class or classes. HCTC uses No-Show process to verify students attendance in classes. For more information about the No-Show process, click here.

If a student is confirmed as a No-Show, the student's financial aid will be adjusted and a student will receive aid based upon the actual number of classes the student is attending(this will be less than the amount the student originally was awarded). Additionally, if you decide you do not want to take one or more of your classes after you register for them, make sure you drop them during the drop/add period. To avoid problems with the No-Show process, attend/participate in your classes! it is as simple as that!
