How Do I Obtain Financial Aid?
Fill out the FAFSA online (www.fafsa.ed.gov) or on paper. Check the Student Financial Services website at the college you want to attend for information about scholarships, grants and loans.
Do I Need to Submit Transcripts?
High school and college transcripts are required only to validate a prerequisite or if you would like credit for a course completed at another institution. All transcripts must be official, sealed transcripts, printed no more than 90 days/3 months ago.
Why Do I Need To Take An English and Math Assessment?
Most first-time RCCD students will need to take a test of their Math, English and Reading skills to help determine what level of courses they need to take. The only exceptions are students who attended a four-year college, students with an Associate’s degree or higher and students taking less than five units for personal development, career advancement or to maintain a certificate or license.
What Comes Next?
You must complete the Online Orientation and Student Education Plan on WebAdvisor.
For further information regarding enrollment and fees, contact the Admissions and Records office at the college you plan to attend.
