Frequently Asked Questions about Financial Aid

Can I receive financial aid as a visiting student at Reynolds Community College?

To be eligible for financial aid, you must be seeking to complete a financial aid-eligible program at Reynolds Community College. If you are visiting us from another school and do not plan to complete an academic program at Reynolds, contact your home institution regarding your financial aid eligibility options.

Is there a way I can receive financial aid at my home institution?

Their financial aid will be processed by their home institution and they will be reimbursed with their financial aid from the home institution. Speak with your financial aid office at your home institution to determine if a Consortium Agreement is an available option.
