Financial Aid

Apply for Financial Aid

If you are seeking financial aid as a means to help pay your educational expenses, you must first apply by complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov. The FAFSA will help determine your eligibility for all types of financial aid such as grants and student loans. Because there are priority deadlines for scholarships and campus-based awards, such as the Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG) and Federal Work Study (FWS), you should complete your FAFSA as soon as possible. The FAFSA priority deadline at Hocking College is February 1.


To ensure that Hocking College receives your FAFSA, please enter our school code: 007598. The income tax information you will use to complete the FAFSA should be from the Prior Year. The 2017-2018 FAFSA application will be available after October 1, 2017. When you complete the FAFSA, you will have the option to use the Data Retrieval Tool (DRT). The DRT enables your IRS tax information to populate directly into the FAFSA. This a quick and easy tool implemented for your convenience in completing the FAFSA.

Completed the FAFSA?

Awesome. Here Are Your Next Steps!

After you have successfully completed the FAFSA, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR). The SAR outlines the information you entered on you FAFSA and you should review the information for accuracy. After completing the FAFSA process and resolving any pending items, Financial Aid Services will send you an email to alert you that your award letter is available for review on the Financial Aid Self Service Portal. Please review your award notification carefully and follow up on any pending items on the checklist.
