The purpose of this Financial Aid policy is to assist eligible students with the delivery of financial aid at Hudson County Community College (“College”) and to administer financial aid programs in accordance with the College’s mission, and federal and state regulations.
The College and its Board of Trustees (“Board”) are committed to helping eligible
students and their families meet educational costs through various forms of financial
assistance. The College will provide eligible students with information regarding
available resources to help students with their educational expenses. The College
shall also develop and implement general procedures in order to take a systematic
and consistent approach in operating financial assistance programs.
The College maintains a comprehensive financial aid program for students who can demonstrate need and disburses available monies to students experiencing significant financial constraints. The Financial Aid Office awards funds from federal and state sources through grants, scholarships, loans, and employment. Federal and state guidelines determine students’ eligibility and requirements. The College and the Financial Aid Office will continue to promote financial assistance opportunities to students who, without aid, would be unable to attend school.
The Board delegates to the President the responsibility to develop procedures and guidelines for implementing this policy. The Financial Aid Office shall be responsible for implementing the procedures and guidelines developed for this policy.
