2023-2024 SAP Appeal Request Form- SAP appeals will be accepted for Fall 2023 semester beginning August 21, 2023. The deadline to submit a Fall 2023 Appeal Form is November 22, 2023.
Statement of Decline – This form is for students who DO NOT wish to receive financial aid at Rio Hondo College and would like to decline their financial aid award. Please fill out and return to the Office of Financial Aid.
Income Reduction Form 23-24 – The Income Reduction Form is for students whose Financial Aid is being negatively affected due to their household income in 2022 being much lower than in 2021 (which the FAFSA uses to calculate the student’s EFC.)
*** Please note: If you have an EFC of -0- you are already eligible for the maximum amount of financial aid we can award you, and therefore we cannot accept this form from you.
Authorization for Release of Student Record Information – The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) prevents Rio Hondo College from giving out any student information to anybody other than the student, unless the student has completed and returned an Authorization for Release of Student Record Information form. If a student wishes to give Rio Hondo College permission to release student records to a third party we must have a signed, completed form on file at the Office of Financial Aid. The form must be presented unsigned with a valid picture ID. Then the student can sign the form in the presence of a witness, at which point we are allowed to release information to the persons(s) listed.
