Noncredit Scholarships

The HACC Foundation offers scholarships to students enrolling in noncredit courses. Learn more about the noncredit scholarship application.

How do I apply for a noncredit scholarship?

  • Complete the application below. You must complete a new application for each course.
  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  See scholarship eligibility criteria after the application section for more details.

Some scholarships require unmet financial need. The HACC foundation calculates this need by using the FAFSA. Complete your current year FAFSA when you apply for scholarships (if applicable).

Will a scholarship cover the entire cost of my course?

A scholarship may not cover the entire cost of your course. Prepare alternative funding options for your selected course.
