Financial aid and planning can help you to achieve your career and college goals. 

Financial aid can help you afford your education after high school. Current or future Oregon students can apply here for grants and scholarships, get help completing financial aid applications, and learn about preparing for college, training, and careers. The HECC Office of Student Access and Completion administers financial aid and college and career access programs for the State of Oregon.
