4. Apply for Financial Aid and Scholarships. Apply early! You must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) if you are interested in financial assistance. In addition, Hinds has many scholarship opportunities for students

5. See a Hinds counselor or advisor prior to your first semester of enrollment.  The counselor or advisor will give you a plan of study that records which classes you are advised to take.  Your counselor will be able to register you for classes or you may choose to register online via my.hindscc.edu. Tuition and fees may be paid at this time, or you may be billed with a payment plan.
