HCC holds ‘Peak Week’

Haywood Community College is holding Peak Week July 12 through July 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 onsite 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. 

Students completing the steps for class registration at Peak Week will also be entered to win prizes, including a laptop. Peak Week will be located in the 1500 (Hemlock) building on campus.  Hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. The financial aid office will be open until 6 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, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., visit, or call 828.627.2821.
