GHC doesn’t want a lack of money to stop anyone from getting an
education. So for those with tight budgets, we offer financial
aid, scholarships and loans.
Applying for Aid
Complete the Free
Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You must be a
U.S. citizen or eligible
non-citizen to apply for aid.
Prior to completing this application
online, you should visit www.pin.ed.gov and
apply for an electronic signature PIN. This will allow you to fill
out the FAFSA with an electronic signature which will greatly speed
up the application process; without an electronic signature, the
process will involve a mail-in signature card which will take up
to 4 weeks to process.
It's a good idea to read the FAFSA
overview before you start the application process. Make sure
you have the documents
required to complete the application and note that the code
for GHC is 003779.
The FAFSA is required for almost all financial aid programs.
Dates to Know
Plan early and allow plenty of time to complete the required application
forms. It can take up to six weeks to process the FAFSA. Students
should begin the process as soon as possible after January 1.
priority date for funding is May 1.
Scholarship applications are typically due late February or early March.
Specific deadline dates will be available on the GHC
financial aid website beginning in November.
The GHC financial
aid website has all forms available.
