Cosmetology

Cosmetology Students / Aid

Cosmetology is a clock hour program, and therefore is not awarded the same as academic courses. The Pell-Grant (if you qualify) will be awarded in three equal disbursements. The first will be at your initial enrollment. The following disbursements will be awarded once you reach 500 hours, and 1000 hours.  If you apply for a student loan, disbursements will be awarded at 150 hours, 500 hours, and 1,000 hours.

How to Accept Your Financial Aid

Once your FAFSA application has been received, you will need to review your Financial Aid information by logging into Campus Connect through the MyHC Student Portal at myhc.howardcollege.edu.  If additional information is needed to complete your file, the documents needed will be listed.  If your file is complete, you must accept or decline your Financial Aid Package.

If you qualify for the Pell Grant, the amount shown in your Financial Aid information is based on full-time enrollment.  If you choose not to enroll full-time, your Pell will be adjusted based on the number of hours you do enroll in.  

If there is a Loan awarded, the amount shown in your Financial Aid Information is the amount that you qualify to borrow.  You do not have to borrow this amount if you choose not to.  You can borrow less or none at all.  All loans must be applied for by going to http://www.studentloans.gov
