*PLEASE BE AWARE**

The RVC Financial Aid office is hearing of some people being contacted by phone regarding grant opportunities and individuals are being asked for financial and personal information. These groups are SCAMS and they are not obtaining information for legitimate purposes.

· NEVER pay for "free" money!
· The U.S. Government does not telephone people to offer grants
· Grants are never "guaranteed"
· Real grants require applications and documentation
· Never give out a social se...curity number or bank information over the phone
· If you get such a call, try to get as much information from the caller as you can without giving out your own information, then contact the Better Business Bureau to file a complaint

The RVC Financial Aid Office can provide students with information regarding legitimate forms of grants, loans, and scholarships

Invest in Your Futurecollege-costs

Hundreds of students each year choose to start their future at Rock Valley College because of the incredible value RVC offers. Students attending RVC full-time will typically pay less than $4,300 in tuition during the two years they're enrolled. That's less than the cost of one year's tuition at a state university.


Nearly half of our students receive some financial assistance in the form of grants, scholarships, loans, and student employment programs. Several local organizations and individuals offer private scholarships. The amounts of awards vary and can help defray the costs of your courses, books, and living expenses.

Scholarships

You may need to obtain a separate application form for any outside scholarship for which you wish to apply. Keep in mind that each scholarship program has its own application procedures and deadlines.

Rock Valley College offers funding assistance provided by private donors, the RVC Foundation, and other state and community sources. New and current full-time and part-time students are encouraged to apply. RVC Foundation scholarship applications must be completed online, on the scholarships page of the Rock Valley College website. The application for the RVC Foundation Scholarships must be submitted by the due date.
