Student Loan Application Process

Holmes now offers two separate loan options for students. 

The Title IV Direct Student Loan option, which requires that a student qualify by completing a FAFSA application, be approved and eligible, and complete your verification if you were selected for verification. You must be in good standing with the Financial Aid Office, meaning you must not be failing satisfactory academic progress.  All appeals must be complete before you will be eligible for a student loan. 

You must request and complete the Holmes Community College Loan Application, this is in addition to FAFSA.  This is an in-house, paper application that is only available directly from the Financial Aid Office. 

You must have official transcripts on file with Admissions and Records, from all schools attended, to be eligible for a student loan.

To apply for the Advantage Education Loan through the Kentucky Higher Education Student Loan Corporation click on the link.  All questions concerning this alternate loan need to be directed to Advantage Education Loans. 

The My Holmes portal will show your progress and will populate your loan as soon as it is completed. If you have questions about your Title IV loan, please feel free to email Tabetha Daves at tdaves@holmescc.edu or call 662-472-9177.
