The Hartnell College Financial Aid Office looks forward to helping you discover the many ways to help make college affordable. Our priority is assisting students through the Financial Aid process.

The purpose of financial aid programs is to remove financial barriers that may prevent you from pursuing your educational goals. By working together, we can help you understand how to pay your way through college and you can reach your goals more.

Financial Aid programs attempt to fill the gap that may exist between the cost of education and the money available to students from family, employment, savings, and other resources. Hartnell’s Financial Aid programs assist students who might otherwise be unable to continue their education due to financial hardship.

We offer a variety of financial aid programs that are funded by the federal government, the state and private sources. These include grants, work-study opportunities and scholarships. Since there are so many ways to finance your education, Hartnell's Financial Aid Office can provide key information to help you access the kind of assistance to meet your unique needs. You can also use our  NET PRICE CALCULATOR  to get as estimate on how much it will cost to attend Hartnell and the amount of grants and scholarships you may qualify for at Hartnell.

We sincerely hope that you will count on us to help you through the entire financial aid process!
