2 Easy Steps to Make Your Tuition Affordable

  1. Complete your FAFSA: Many, but not all, of the RCC scholarships are need-based. Even if you do not think you will qualify for a need-based scholarship, it is highly recommended that you complete a safe, confidential FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) to help match you with all the scholarships for which you may be eligible. The RCC School Code 009160.
  2. Submit your scholarship application: Scholarships can be combined with federal and state financial aid or used alone to cover the cost of RCC tuition and fees. Click here for tips on how to apply!

Information for Scholarship Donors

Scholarships at RCC have been established through the generosity of individuals, organizations, and corporations to recognize outstanding performances and assist students in pursuing quality education, debt-free. Because we believe no one should be denied access to higher education due to financial hardship, we continually seek private support for our scholarships.
