Welcome to the Office of Financial Aid at Hostos Community College.

Our mission is to provide professional services to students that will remove financial barriers and empower them to meet their educational goals. Through the strict adherence of federal, state and city requirements, the Office of Financial Aid at Hostos incorporates best practices for the field provided by national, regional and state associations to nurture a supportive structure resulting in the timely delivery of student aid funds.

The Office of Financial Aid staff is committed to help students understand the various financial aid programs that are available, and to work with those who face significant financial difficulties during their career at Hostos. In addition, we strive to deliver high quality services with professional competency and concern. We are dedicated to the equitable treatment of all applicants and the privacy of confidential information.

Financial Aid counseling is available on an individual basis, by appointment, and via group workshops conducted throughout the academic year. Staff provide assistance filing financial aid forms online and monitor student records to ensure that they comply with federal and state requirements.  We will use all the resources at our disposal to ensure that finances do not prevent qualified students from earning a college degree.

We hope that this web site will serve our students as an important guide by informing them of the various types of financial assistance available to them and how to obtain it.
