Types of Aid

The following forms of financial aid are available at Red Rocks Community College by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Grants are awarded based on financial need and do not have to be repaid. Grant amounts are also determined by the cost of attendance at RRCC minus a student's estimated family contribution. Student enrollment status is also taken into consideration and grants will be pro-rated if a student is attending less than full-time. With the exception of the Pell grant and ACG grant, funding to colleges is yearly and in limited amounts. There could be times a student may show eligibility, but funds may be exhausted.
