Welcome to Rio Hondo College Financial Aid Office!
Paying for the cost of a college education requires a partnership among parents, students and the college. Each partner has responsibilities to fulfill in meeting that cost. Financial aid is money that helps you pay for the cost of your education (college fees, books and supplies). Rio Hondo College (RHC) participates in most Federal and State financial aid programs.
The 2017/2018 FAFSA covers Fall 2017, Spring 2018 and Summer 2018.
The 2018/2019 FAFSA covers the upcoming Fall 2018, Spring 2019 and Summer 2019 semesters.
