RCC Invites Students to Participate in FAFSA Day Oct. 29

“The free FAFSA Day is taking place earlier than in years past, according to Joey Trogdon, assistant director of financial aid and veterans affairs for RCC, because of federal regulation changes. Students can file their FAFSAs earlier, as early as Oct. 1, 2016, rather than beginning on Jan. 1, 2017, and students can use earlier income information. For the 2017-18 FAFSA, students (and parents, as appropriate) will report their 2015 income information, rather than their 2016 income information.”
