Welcome to the HGSE Student Aid Portal

*Important Information Regarding HGSE Financial Aid and COVID-19 Coronavirus*

Due to current events HGSE Financial Aid is closed for walk-in visits and in-person meetings until further notice.  We encourage students and applicants to e-mail our office with questions and we will respond as quickly as possible.  When e-mailing us please state your questions briefly and directly so we may expedite our response.  E-mail is the most secure, confidential, and efficient way to respond to inquiries at this time, and you can find answers to many commonly asked questions on the "Publications and Forms" page of this site after logging in.
