The Office of Financial Aid assists students in the application process for financial aid. The office processes Free Applications for Federal Student Aid (FAFSAs), awards financial aid to students, provides financial aid loan counseling and prepares and submits financial aid reports and information to the state and federal government.
The Office of Financial Aid administers financial aid programs in accordance with policies and guidelines established by J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College, the State of Virginia and the United States government to ensure that there is reasonable and equitable distribution of the limited funds available to students. The Office of Financial Aid also ensures that priority is given to those students with legitimate and demonstrated need.
New Financial Aid Eligibility Notification
Federal regulations indicate that students can only receive financial aid for courses that apply toward their declared degree or certificate program.
While this is not a new rule, Reynolds has adopted the Financial Aid Course Audit (FACA), a new system that allows us to inform you within 24-48 hours after you register whether any of your course selections are ineligible for financial aid.
It is our hope that providing you with this information will help you to better plan your academic career, select courses that apply to your program, and complete your degree or certificate program in a timely manner.
Beginning with Spring 2017 registration, you will now have information about the financial aid eligibility for each class you are enrolled.
