The following are basic guidelines for students who wish to request aid while attending GCC:
- Request Federal Aid by completing the FAFSA form online before the appropriate deadline. Click HERE to learn more.
- Request State Aid by completing the HESAA form online before the appropriate deadline. Click HERE to learn more.
- Track the progress of your Federal Aid and State Aid to ensure that each process has been completed. For example, the Federal or State may send a student a request vial email or standard mail to submit additional documentation. Failure to comply with these requests before the appropriate deadlines could lead to unexpected delays.
For students and parents, it is important to understand the impact of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Please click HERE to learn more.
