FAFSA Application

  2. Your parent should create their own FSA ID. This will let them electronically sign your FAFSA. (Undocumented parents can't create an FSA ID - they'll sign your FAFSA on a paper form.)
  3. Visit and complete your FAFSA, as early as October 1 for the following school year. Be sure to add Reedley College (school code: 001308) to your FAFSA so we get your information!
    1. NOTE: Didn't answer “yes” to Federal Work Study on your FAFSA? Email the Financial Aid Office to be placed on the waitlist.

CA DREAM ACT Application (CADAA For Undocumented Students)

  3. Visit and complete your Dream Act Application, as early as October 1 for the following school year. Be sure to add RC (school code: 001308) to your Dream Act application so we get your information!
    1. NOTE: Current high school students must submit an AB540 Affidavit to the Reedley College Admissions and Records Office after graduation.

STEP 2: Complete Your File

  1. Check your RC student email regularly. The RC Financial Aid Office will notify you if you need to correct your FAFSA or Dream Act application or submit documentation to our office, or when your Financial Aid Award Letter is ready to view.

If you are waitlisted for an online course, you will need to email the instructor to see if there is room for you to enroll in the class. You can find the instructor’s contact information when you click on the course link under the "Section Name” column in Self-Service. If there is room in the section, the instructor will grant add authorization which will enable you to enroll in the class.

How to Add a Waitlisted Class

Once the course is complete, be sure to request your official transcript to take back to your primary college or university.
