Important Information Regarding Financial Aid

Students interested in applying for financial assistance must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The form must be submitted in one of the following ways:


• Complete the FAFSA online at


• Request a paper FAFSA by calling the Federal Student Aid Information Center toll-free at 1-800-433-3243, complete and mail to the federal processing center.


• Download and complete a PDF version of the FAFSA at and mail it in to the federal processing center.


You must reapply each year. Renewal is not automatic. You should complete the application as soon as possible after January 1st of each year. To be considered for financial aid, applicants must be enrolled in an eligible curriculum leading to a degree or diploma, students must have a high school diploma or GED in which the transcript has been received by RCCC’s admissions office, students must be meeting and maintain satisfactory academic progress, and a student may not owe a repayment on a grant or be in default on an educational loan, in addition to any other criteria set by the US Department of Education.


Priority Dates

In order to provide adequate time for processing and awarding financial aid prior to the start of classes, priority dates are identified for each semester.


Fall Semester – June 1st

Spring Semester – October 15th


If you submit your financial aid application after the established priority dates, you must be prepared to pay for your tuition, fees, and books. Please be aware that it takes approximately eight to twelve weeks to process the application. 


If a student’s financial aid eligibility has not been determined before the start of the semester, the student will need to be prepared to pay for tuition, fees, and books out of pocket or will need to set up a tuition payment plan.  Emergency assistance is available, but limited on a first come-first serve basis.  Once eligibility has been determined and there is financial aid eligibility, the student will be reimbursed for the amount of financial aid he/she is eligible for minus any funds due to the college.



Textbook Charges/Returns

Students who wish to charge their textbooks using financial aid, scholarship, grants, sponsorships, etc. will be permitted to charge and return textbooks through the Bookstore until May 23, 2013.  All bookstore charges and returns, using financial aid, scholarships, grants, sponsorships, etc., will end on May 23rd.  Books that are out of stock must be pre-charged in the Bookstore against the student’s Financial Aid or Sponsorship.  A charge slip must be signed by the student.  The Bookstore manager will properly notify the instructor when the books are available for pickup.  Bookstore charging WILL NOT be permitted after May 23, 2013.

The Bookstore Manager will properly notify the instructor when late textbook orders are available.
