Oregon residents who have undocumented status, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status, and/or Temporary Protected Status (TPS) should complete the ORSAA* instead of the FAFSA. ORSAA applicants can disregard the information below and, once the ORSAA is submitted, watch their Financial Aid Status page on myRogue for updates from our Financial Aid Office.

FAFSA/Renewal FAFSA on the Web

The 3-Step Process:

  • How do you apply?
  • What happens next?
  • Are you in control?

STEP 1: Complete the FAFSA on the Web

The FAFSA serves as the application for federal and state student financial aid.  To apply for student financial aid at RCC you must complete the FAFSA  on the Web at the Department of Education's secure site,, as soon after October 1 as possible.

* Applying online is fast, easy, secure, and less error-prone than applying on paper. The federal processor is able to process your electronic application two to three weeks faster than a paper application.

As you complete the FAFSA on the Web, read and follow the online instructions carefully and be prepared to provide the following information:

  • Your social security number
  • Individual student information (e.g., marital status, veteran status, etc.)
  • Adjusted gross income (AGI) and benefits information for the year requested on the FAFSA
  • Non-taxable income and benefits
  • Assets

Note: If necessary, use estimated tax information to complete the FAFSA by the recommended date.

  • Review the information you have entered on the FAFSA and make sure it is correct before you press the "submit" button. A complete and accurate FAFSA is an important step in the smooth processing of your student financial aid application.

Whatever option you choose for completing the FAFSA, be sure to list RCC (#010071) in Step Six. Using this code will ensure RCC receives your FAFSA information.

  • Keep important papers, such as a printed copy of your FAFSA, tax information, and letters that you receive in a student financial aid folder.
