Haywood Community College will hold Peak Week July 12 through 16. This week is dedicated to helping both new and returning students get registered for the upcoming fall semester. Students are encouraged to complete the HCC application and the Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) prior to attending Peak Week; however, assistance will be available on-site as well.

During Peak Week, students will get assistance with the admissions application, residency verification, advising, class registration, and applying for available scholarships and other forms of financial aid. In addition, there will be tours of campus and other resources available. All students, whether new or returning, are encouraged to participate.

Dr. Michael Coleman, Vice President of Student Services, stated, “HCC is planning on a return of traditional classes and college operations this upcoming fall semester, and Peak Week is a great opportunity to get students back on campus and showcase why we believe HCC should be the first choice in higher education.”

Students completing the steps for class registration at Peak Week will also be entered to win some great prizes, including a laptop! Peak Week will be located in the 1500 (Hemlock) building on campus.  Hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. The financial aid office will be open until 6:00 p.m. Wednesday, July 14, to assist students with their FAFSA application.

Fall semester classes begin August 16. For more information or for those who want to attend HCC and cannot participate in Peak Week, please email hcc-advising@haywood.edu, visit www.haywood.edu/peakweek, or call 828-627-2821.
