This may include student's and/or parent's tax transcript, Financial Aid Payment and Policy Notification Form,and other forms, or documents required by federal, state, and Hinds Community College to complete your file.

  4. Once your financial aid file is complete, an award notification letter showing the type and amount of aid awarded will be mailed to you.
