What does a year at HCTC cost?

Our Net Price Calculator can act as your guide and give you an idea of what similar students paid for HCTC in a previous year. This is only an estimate meant to help you in planning for college.

So, how does this work? Well, the amounts are based on information you provide, then the calculator compares your information to the actual awards received by in-state, full-time, first-time students during the 2014-2015 academic year. Remember, this estimate does not mean you will receive the same financial aid awards. Those are subject to change based on a number of factors. You should use this tool to get a general idea of what your college cost could be. If you have questions, just ask. We're happy to help.

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 eligible to receive financial aid for that class or classes. HCTC uses No-Show process to verify student's 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!
