Welcome to Financial Aid!
The Financial Aid office exists to serve students by helping to reduce the financial barriers to educational goals. We understand applying for financial aid can be difficult and sometimes frustrating. We are here to help make the application process as simple as possible. Please take advantage of the tools and information provided on our website and do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns. A college education will be one of the most important investments a student and family will make.
Before each academic year you can apply for federal and state grants with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. RCCC uses your FAFSA data to determine federal and state eligibility each year. Make sure you include our school code ( 005754) to provide us with access to your application.
