The Richland College Financial Aid Office Welcomes You!
Welcome to Richland College Financial Aid! We are glad that you have chosen to study at Richland College, and we are committed to providing you the student services you need to help you be successful in achieving your educational goals.
Financial aid is just one of those student services and is available to all Richland College students who qualify based on demonstrated financial need and the availability of funds. Financial assistance comes in many forms--grants, scholarships, loans, and employment opportunities--with the express purpose of assisting students with education-related expenses.
If you are a new or continuing student who wants to be considered for financial aid assistance, you must first complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) annually. FAFSA information is available in our office, and FAFSA is the first step in your process to obtain financial assistance. Financial Aid counseling is available on an individual basis, by appointment, and in small-group workshops conveniently scheduled throughout the academic year. Our Financial Aid staff can assist you in filing your financial aid forms online and are available to answer your questions related to the application process. Please plan a visit to our Richland College Financial Aid Office and take advantage of our student-centered service.
