Any applications received after the deadline or incomplete will not be accepted (applies to first-time and renewal applicants.)
Paper applications will not be accepted. Students must have an email address that they check regularly.

The HEP determines if a student is Scholarship or Grant. Students who receive a Grant are required to complete an additional form called the Financial Needs Analysis (FNA) Form. If the FNA document is required, the student will be notified and sent an FNA form by email.
*Students, if the Financial Aid Office will not return the FNA form, you will need to contact HEP as soon as possible.
