Applying for Financial Aid

To be considered for financial aid, such as grants, student loans and work study, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form and include GRCC's school code 002267.  The application is free and will be submitted to the Department of Education.

2015-16 - Student's must complete the 2015-16 FAFSA by June 30, 2016 to apply for financial aid for Fall 2015, Winter 2016 and Summer 2016.

After Applying

After applying for financial aid through the FAFSA, the Department of Education will then determine the applicant's Expected Family Contribution (EFC).  This EFC determines eligibility for various federal and state financial aid programs. The Federal Processor will provide the applicant with a Student Aid Report (SAR). This report usually takes 7 to 10 days to receive electronically.  Please review the SAR and make any necessary corrections.  GRCC's Financial Aid Office will receive the Student Aid Report electronically.

GRCC has created a source for students to “check on their financial aid status” called MY FINANCIAL AID. For more information -->CLICK HERE<--
