?      When will my financial aid be applied to my account?
         Financial aid is only disbursed for those classes you are registered for and attending. After attendance is
         reported each semester, your financial aid is adjusted for the classes you are attending at that point.
         Once your attendance is reported, your financial aid will be disbursed to your student account. You need
         to be registered at least six credit hours for loans.

          Grants for late start classes will not be disbursed until attendance is reported.

?      If I have to drop a class, how will it affect my financial aid?
           You must maintain Financial Aid Satisfactory Progress each semester to prevent your financial aid from
           being suspended (refer the Financial Aid Handbook for the complete Financial Aid Satisfactory Progress

          Depending on the timing of your drop, your financial aid could be adjusted. Always check with the
          financial aid office prior to dropping classes. (Refer to the Financial Aid Handbook for detailed

?      What options are available if I need additional funding beyond what is provided on my Award Letter?
         A Parent PLUS loan is a loan in a parents name for the student. Information and the application is
         available on the Hawkeye Website (www.hawkeyecollege.edu/financialaid). For more information refer to
         your Financial Aid Handbook.

          Private Student loans through banks that are NOT guaranteed (student borrower).

?      How do I get signed up for the federal work-study program?
         If interested, you need to complete an application, which can be found on the HCC website. You must
         show financial need to be eligible. The pay rate is $7.25 per hour with an increase of $0.50 per hour with
         continuous employment (refer to the Financial Aid Handbook for detailed information).

?      When is my Credit Balance check (financial aid in excess of tuition, fees and books) mailed?
         The Business Office will mail them on the following dates:

          •   Fall- September 10, 2010

          •   Spring- January 28, 2011

                                 (Refer to the Financial Aid Handbook for detailed information.)

?      What do I need to do to get financial aid for Summer classes?

          You will need to fill out a Summer Financial Aid Application which is available online after you have
          registered for your summer classes. You will also have to have a current year and following school year’s
          FAFSAs filed.

?      What if I received outside scholarships or assistance from outside agencies?
         Any outside funding sources should be reported to the Business Office. The Business Office will then
         notify the Financial Aid Office.
         Outside funding sources become part of your financial aid award and will be reflected on your award

?      What if I will be attending part-time?
         Your grant aid will be adjusted at the time of disbursement to reflect your enrollment status. Loans are
         normally not adjusted.
