RVCC offers a quality education that’s
affordable and accessible to everyone.
We strive to give students a first-rate education without being saddled with huge college debt. The college offers a flexible payment plan to make paying tuition more manageable. We also offer all forms of federal and state financial aid including grants and loans. Scholarships are also available deserving students.
The first step in seeking financial aid – including loans, grants and scholarships – is to fill out the FAFSA application. Students must re-apply for financial aid each academic year. The FAFSA is the application for Federal and State grants as well as Federal Loans (including the Stafford Loan) and for Federal Work Study. You can complete the FAFSA online. RVCC’s federal school code for the FAFSA is 007731. Students can view financial aid information on Lion’s Den, the student online portal.
The federal government may randomly select a student’s FAFSA for a process called Verification. Verification requires that your college verify that the Income and household size information you reported on the FAFSA is correct. RVCC has partnered with a company called Pro-Education Solutions to assist students and simplify this process. Students who are selected will be simultaneously notified by the RVCC Financial Aid Office and Pro-Ed to log into the Verification website at rvcc.proed.org and complete electronic forms to verify their info
The College awards $300,000 in scholarships every year to deserving students. A wide range of scholarship opportunities are available based on academic merit and financial need. Special scholarships are available for first-time college students. Students must complete a FASFA to be eligible for consideration for a scholarship.
Free Tuition Opportunity Grant
RVCC is participating in the New Jersey Community College Opportunity Grant Program, which offers free community college to qualified students. Eligible students will receive free tuition and most educational fees for up to 18 credits a semester. The first step is to complete the FASFA or New Jersey Alternative Financial Aid Application.
