Harford Community College's Financial Aid Office provides assistance and counseling to students seeking financial aid. Assistance is available through grants, scholarships, loans and student employment. Have immediate questions? Click the Orange Button in the bottom-right corner.
We strive to assist and educate students by providing the best service possible so they may focus on their educational experiences. All students must apply each year for financial aid at www.fafsa.gov.
FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. You can start filing the FAFSA on October 1st for the upcoming academic year.
The Maryland State priority deadline for FAFSA applications is March 1st of each year for the following academic year that begins in the fall.
When you apply online, you will be given an option to retrieve tax information through the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT). Tax information retrieved will automatically populate, although it will not be viewable to the applicant. Items transferred will say "Transferred from the IRS". Click here for IRS Data Retrieval Tool instructions.
The Financial Aid Office at Harford Community College offers free financial aid counseling services to all persons who request such help. All students attending the College are awarded all of the student financial aid for which they are eligible. Students have the right to cancel/decline some or all of any student financial aid award. HCC’s Financial Aid Office does not discriminate on the basis of curriculum, race color, creed, national or ethnic origin, gender religion, disability, age, veteran status, sexual orientation, marital status, citizenship status (except in those circumstances permitted or mandated by Federal law), or any other status protected by law or regulation when awarding or disbursing student financial assistance.
