RCC’s priority deadline is April 15th before the Fall semester the student would like to attend. Applications for financial aid should be completed and submitted electronically at www.fafsa.gov to the office of Federal Student Financial Aid Programs four weeks prior to registration at RCC.
Students must submit separate applications for scholarships. RCC/EFI Scholarship applications are usually available in January with a mid-March deadline for the upcoming academic year.
Students who wish to be considered for the work-study program must inform RCC financial aid staff.
Deadlines are established each semester for the first day to charge and the last day to charge against financial aid award in the bookstore, and for submission of necessary information.
These dates will be posted in the Financial Aid Office, on bulletin boards, in the Business Office, Bookstore, Student Lounge (Plasma TV screens), and on the RCC Website (financial aid section).
Students who wish to take advantage of Veterans’ Administration educational benefits for which they may be entitled should plan well in advance to ensure that the necessary VA approvals can be obtained prior to registration.
