FREE Tuition for Fall 2024 First Time Students with HCTC Promise

Not enough or any financial aid? No worries! HCTC Promise—We’ve got you covered!

HCTC is making a promise to any first-time, credential seeking students enrolling in the Fall 2024 semester that we’ve got your back!

This is a “last dollar in” scholarship, which means after all your other aid (PELL, CAP, KEES, Work-Ready Scholarship, grants, third-party scholarships, etc.) has been applied, the HCTC Promise scholarship will cover the balance for:

  • Tuition of up to 18 credit hours, with a six credit hours minimum (only program applicable courses)
  • All Fees
  • Online course charges

This is OUR promise to YOU that, as a first-time student, you will pay ZERO tuition your first year at HCTC! *Eligibility extends to any first-time, credential-seeking Kentucky residents and any Kentucky class of 2024 seniors, including those who have taken dual credit classes.

Go to today to apply! Contact HCTC Dean of Advancement Carla Seals at (606) 487-3072 or at for more information.

Other KCTCS college students, visiting students, students with prior college credit(s) excluding dual-credit hours, and current high school students are ineligible, as are the costs of program kits, tools, and books/resources.

**Eligible students must complete their FAFSA and the HCTC Promise application and MUST take HCTC classes and have HCTC listed as their home campus. Students must also maintain a 2.0 GPA and complete the Fall 2024 semester to be eligible for the scholarship in the Spring 2025 semester.
