To apply for financial aid at HGSE you must submit the following application materials by their corresponding deadlines. Late applications are accepted, but priority is given to those who meet our initial deadlines. Late applications are also subject to funding availability.

The HGSE Financial Aid Office will contact you with information and instructions on how to submit your Financial Aid Application, and the HGSE Financial Aid Application is due by July 24, 2020. If you prefer to apply for federal aid exclusively (Federal Work Study and loans) you must only submit the 2020-2021 FAFSA (see below).  We recommend completing both the HGSE Financial Aid Application and FAFSA so you are considered for the maximum sources of aid available.
