  • Types of Federal Student Aid

    以下是学生可获得的不同类型经济援助的一些一般描述. Additional information is available at http://studentaid.gov/understand-aid/types.


    A grant is money that is given to a student by the government or an organization; grants do not have to be repaid. 教育部提供联邦佩尔助学金和联邦补充教育机会补助金(SEOG) to students who are eligible based on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Click HERE to learn more about federal grants.

    The State of Oregon also offers the Oregon Opportunity Grant and the Oregon Promise Grant. Oregon residents that are not eligible to file the FAFSA may file the Oregon Student Aid Application (ORSAA) to apply for Oregon grants.


    奖学金类似于助学金,因为它是赠予学生的钱,不需要偿还. 奖学金通常是根据学术或其他成就颁发的, and students must apply for the funds.

    The Mt Hood Community College Foundation or the Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC) are good places to start when looking for scholarships!

    Undocumented students may also find scholarships using the free DREAMer’s Roadmap app. 访问他们的网页了解更多信息,并下载iPhone或Android应用程序!

    Work-Study Jobs

    联邦勤工俭学(FWS)是一项基于需求的联邦学生援助计划,在入学期间为符合条件的学生提供兼职工作. Students must seek out and apply for work-study jobs through the student employment office at Mt Hood Community College. 学生按工作时数直接支付工资,所得工资不得超过学校在奖励年度颁发的总额. The availability of work-study jobs varies by school and not all students are eligible.


    A loan is money that a student borrows from a lender to help pay for their education; loans must be paid back. The federal government provides Direct Loan options to eligible FAFSA applicants, and parents of students may apply for Federal PLUS Loans as well.

    Students may also apply for private or alternative student loans from a bank, credit union, state agency, or a school. MHCC不提供私人贷款或提供贷方或贷款计划建议.
