Apply for Financial Aid - Fill out your FAFSA!

Apply for your PIN

Apply for your PIN, your personal identification number, at www.pin.ed.gov. A PIN lets you apply, “sign” your online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and make corrections to your application information. Both the student and a parent (if the student is dependent) must apply for a PIN number to use as your electronic signature.

Safeguard Your PIN and Remember It!

Complete the FAFSA

Complete the FAFSA online by going to www.fafsa.ed.gov.  A FAFSA must be completed for EACH school year.  The school year consists of Fall, Spring and Summer terms.  It is to your advantage to complete the FAFSA each year as soon as you complete your taxes for the previous year.  Some state funds are on a first come first serve basis. 

Remember:

  • You do not have to pay to apply for federal student aid. This service is FREE. Be aware of scams and services that charge you a fee.
  • You will need your income tax returns and W-2 forms or other records of income.
  • Fill out the FAFSA accurately using your exact name and social security number as reflected on your social security card.
  • Make sure you keep copies of your taxes in case your school requests additional information from you.
  • The Hopkinsville Community College school code is 001994.
  • If you purposely give false or misleading information on your FAFSA, you may be fined up to $20,000, sent to prison, or both.
  • In order to be eligible for Kentucky state grants, your FAFSA must be filed by March 15.
  • YOU MAY NOT RECEIVE FEDERAL PELL GRANT FUNDS FROM MORE THAN ONE SCHOOL AT A TIME.  IF YOU DO YOU WILL BE ASKED TO REPAY ONE OF THE COLLEGES FOR THE DISBURSED AMOUNT!!!

You must complete the FAFSA and submit all needed paperwork by the Financial Aid Priority Date.
