Financial Aid Frequently Asked Questions

How do I find out if I am eligible for financial aid?

Complete the FAFSA and provide the required signatures. It will take 3-7 days for the U.S. Department of Education to process your electronic FAFSA and send your Student Aid Report (SAR) electronically to Richland. Your SAR will summarize the data you report on your FAFSA. Check the SAR carefully to make sure it is accurate. Keep a copy of your SAR. If your FAFSA information is complete, an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) will be printed in the upper right corner.

Standards of Academic Progress for Financial Aid Recipients

The Richland Community College Financial Aid Office is required by federal regulations to monitor academic progress toward a degree or certificate for all financial aid recipients.

In order to receive financial aid at Richland, a student's total academic record, including transfer work, must be evaluated. While remedial hours are not counted in the College cumulative grade point average calculation, they will be reviewed for GPA and successful completion for financial aid purposes.
