The primary purpose of the financial aid program is to enable qualified students with limited financial resources to attend Herkimer County Community College. Approximately 75% of our student population receives some source of financial aid while attending our institution. Students must meet specific General Eligibility Requirements to receive financial aid, and must matriculate into a degree program by completing an admissions application.
Financial aid is any grant, scholarship, loan, or employment opportunity with the express purpose of assisting students with educational related expenses. Although the primary obligation for college expenses rests with the student and the student's parents, the College, the community and the State and Federal governments have programs of financial assistance that can be employed separately or in combination to meet individual needs.
The College gives priority in awarding financial aid to those students with the greatest need. Students can access their financial aid status on Student Online Services. Federal and state regulations require students to maintain satisfactory academic progress and program pursuit in order to receive financial aid. For more information on student academic progress please refer to our Academic Requirements section.
