How do I apply for aid?
Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step in getting aid for college. Apply online at https://fafsa.gov/. You will need to create an FSA ID and password to complete the FAFSA. You will be prompted to create an FSA ID or you can go to http://fsaid.ed.gov/.
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, dual credit classes, and classes for which aid was not received, must be evaluated. While developmental class hours are not counted in the College cumulative grade point average calculation, they will be reviewed for semester GPA and successful completion for financial aid purposes.
