Financial Aid PoliciesHandshake

Federal Loans –Financial Aid is available in the form of Federal Direct Loans. Students wishing to receive federal loans will be required to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). All students receiving financial aid will be subject to both federal and HGST financial aid requirements contained in the Financial Aid Handbook. Visit the Financial Aid page of the HGST website to print a copy. Students who apply for and receive loans are expected to be working toward graduation from HGST. Tuition and all other HGST accounts must be paid before remaining financial aid funds are distributed to students.

Scholarships –Scholarships are available to HGST students based on a variety of criteria. Scholarship information and packets are available in the Financial Aid Office and on the HGST website for students who desire to apply. Scholarships will not be refunded to the student.

For more information, contact the HGST Financial Aid Office or consult the Financial Aid page of the HGST website.

 No student will be denied financial aid, scholarships, grants, or any other financially related program on the basis of age, gender, race, national or ethnic origin, or handicapping condition.
