At Richmond Community College, our goal is to offer educational programs and assistance that ultimately impact our community for the better, allowing for more jobs, more employed citizens, and overall better lives for the people around us.
A part of this mission relies on students having the means to take advantage of our educational offerings, which often necessitates financial aid or scholarships. Take a look at what we offer for financial assistance at RichmondCC, and if you have questions, contact one of our staff members listed below, or come by the Financial Aid Office in the Student Services Office in the Lee Building if you have questions or concerns.
FAFSA 2023-24 Is Now Open
Applying for FAFSA
To apply for federal aid as a North Carolina student, you must complete a FAFSA. Start by applying for an FSA ID and password online at www.studentaid.gov. Dependent students and their parents each need an FSA ID and password. This information is used to electronically sign the FAFSA application. Keep the information on file because you use it each year to file your FAFSA. Students must complete a new FAFSA each academic year. FAFSA completion is required for RichmondCC scholarships.
If you have trouble with the application, you can call 1-800-4-FEDAID (800-433-3243) or read through the helpful links below. RichmondCC's federal school code is 005464.
Some students who file for FAFSA are selected for a process called verification. This is simply a review of the information that you have put on your application. You may need to get a transcript of your 1040 Federal Income Tax Form. To get a transcript, call 1 (800) 829-1040 or visit IRS.gov. Also, students may need to complete a Verification Worksheet. The Financial Aid Office will notify you if you are selected for verification and you can download the verification form you need from our Financial Aid Forms page. Choose the year that applies. Once we have reviewed your financial information, we will notify you of any aid for which you may qualify.
