“We want to give students every chance to learn.” – Principal Steve Curiel

What and Why:  At HBAS, we never want financial obstacles to keep students from reaching their goals. That’s why we have always strived to make our programs affordable.   And now, HBAS has developed a financial assistance program to help students who need it the most.  

Who can ApplyStarting in Fall 2017, students enrolling in the Career Technical Education Programs (CTE), English as a Second Language (ESL), or Diploma/GED programs will have the opportunity to request financial assistance.  Types of assistance available varies by program:  

  • CTE-  Course Fees, Books, Materials, Transportation (bus vouchers). Note: Only students enrolling in one of our 6 CTE Certificate programs can qualify for assistance.  Students enrolling in an individual CTE course are not eligible for assistance.   
  • ESL-  Books and Transportation 
  • Diploma/GED–  Transportation and Internet Access

We especially want to help our current ESL and Diploma/GED students take the next step in their educational and career paths. Students in these two programs who are in good standing will have a better chance of being awarded financial assistance for our CTE programs.

How to Apply: 

Students can apply for financial assistance in 3 simple steps:

Step 1: First, students must enroll and attend their orientation session, where they will provide household and income information.  Interested students will receive the Financial Assistance Request Form and directions on how to complete it. Note: Supporting documentation is required to verify eligibility.

Step 2: Students bring the completed Financial Assistance Request Form and supporting documentation to the front office staff at either the BESST Center campus, Gothard campus, Westminster Mall campus, or Westminster High School campus.

Step 3: HBAS staff will review the information to determine if the student qualifies for financial assistance. Students will receive a response within 1-2 weeks with further directions.

We are thrilled to have the means to offer financial assistance, and hope this will open the doors for new students to reach their academic and career goals at HBAS.   Learn how to start the enrollment process here.
