How Do Oregon Promise Students Get Approved for a Second Year?
RCC Provides Some Answers
Rogue Community College (RCC) is reminding students who received an Oregon Promise Grant in 2016/17 school year that you do not have to complete another Oregon Promise application for the 2017/18 school year; however, you must complete the following to apply for 2017/18 your Oregon Promise Grant renewal:
- File a 2017/18 FAFSA by July 14, 2017, at www.fafsa.gov.
- Meet RCC’s Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements to maintain financial aid eligibility.
- Have been continuously enrolled at least half-time in each 2016/17 term from your initial term of eligibility, forward.
- Have attempted fewer than 90 credits.
As with new Oregon Promise applicants, the Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC) will not make 2017/18 awards until the Legislature has finalized the program’s budget for the 2017-19 biennium. For more information, see http://www.oregonstudentaid.gov/oregon-promise.aspx.
