HCC’s financial aid office is very excited about the upcoming FAFSA workshop that will be held at Glenelg High School from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm on Wednesday, October 2, 2019.   The financial aid officers hope that coming onsite to Glenelg High School will be helpful for students and families to encourage early completion of the FAFSA and maximize the opportunity for students to apply early enough for financial aid to be considered not only for federal aid but, for state and institutional aid as well.  
Please note, this workshop is not just for those planning to attend Howard Community College. It is for all students preparing to enroll for any college during the 2020-2021 academic year.  
Call Mrs. Miles in Student Services for an appointment. 410-313-5535  A maximum of 40 appointments may be scheduled.  
Spanish speaking interpreters will be available, if needed.  
Parents/Students are encouraged to bring the following information with them:

b.       A copy of the student and/or the parents 2018 Tax Returns, if they have filed.

d.       All 2018 untaxed income info. Untaxed information includes but is not limited to child support, housing, food, and other living allowances, veterans non-educational benefits, etc.  
Computers will be up and running for families to log on and receive assistance from Financial Aid Advisors with the completion the FAFSA. While we recommend that both the student and a parent attend, we understand that parents and sometimes students are unavailable during the day. If only one can attend, we will walk through the process with the attendee to ensure they can take the information back and complete the application process later, when they get home.
