HTC students take advantage of Federal Direct Student Loans in limited numbers. Most students receive Grant and Scholarship aid only. In very rare cases, students will seek outside educational financing. The institution will certify enrollment for students, along with providing other necessary or required information (i.e. cost of attendance). In no cases will the institution promote or suggest a particular lending institution, nor does the institution have a preferred lender list. However, consistent with the law, the institution will provide and/or complete the Private Loan Self-Certification form upon request by the student. Copies of the Private Loan Self-Certification form can be obtained from the Financial Aid Office.
