Applying for Financial Aid at RCC

  2. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). RCC’s school code is 002958.
  3. When the Financial Aid Office receives a copy of your FAFSA from the U.S. Department of Education, a letter may be sent to you requesting any additional information we need to process your file. Once all documents are received, your financial aid file will be reviewed for a possible award.
  4. If it is determined that you are eligible for aid, you will receive a financial aid award letter along with several other important documents about your financial aid package. Carefully read all materials!
  5. Follow up with the Financial Aid Office if you have any questions.
