Submitting Your FAFSA

Submit your FAFSA

  • Submit the 2023-2024 FAFSA for Fall 2023, Winter 2024 and Summer 2024.
  • Submit the 2024-2025 FAFSA for Fall 2024, Winter 2025 and Summer 2025
  • Be sure to add HFC's School Code: 002270.

The State of Michigan will code your FAFSA for the school you list first on your FAFSA. You are encouraged to add HFC’s school code first so that you will show on State of MI rosters for HFC.

We strongly encourage you (or your parents) to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) when completing the FAFSA. This will ensure accuracy on your FAFSA and save time in the event you are selected for the verification process.
