Financial Aid

Welcome to the RCGC Financial Aid Department

Attending college is one of the best investments a person will ever make. However, it is crucial to monitor this investment. Although Rowan College at Gloucester County (RCGC) provides one of the best values in education today, there are many sources of funding to make a student's education even more affordable. Rowan College takes a comprehensive approach to awarding financial aid. More than 40 percent of students who enrolled at the College last year received some form of financial aid.
