What are the next steps after completing the Financial Aid Application?


INSTRUCTIONS: Click on the "Status Check" drop down menus for additional information on each section.


In addition to the FAFSA application, you may be required to submit additional documentation at various points in the process before your eligibility is determined.  Continue to check your student email account for any additional requirements. After College of the Redwoods has received all documentation, determining your eligibility can take between 4 and 6 weeks.



Watch your student email for updates and use WebAdvisor to keep track of which documents have been received and which are missing. View more information on checking your status.





After you register for classes, watch for an information packet in your mailbox (in a bright green envelope). College of the Redwoods has partnered with BankMobile to deliver your financial aid refund. For more information about BankMobile and setting up a refund preference please visit this link:





When your award eligibility is determined approximately 4-6 weeks after we receive all of your documentation, you will be able to see the award on WebAdvisor and accessing your myFinAid.



An email notice will be sent to your student email account to let you know when your award letter has been updated. View more information on checking your status.

  • Consider submitting applications for scholarships, work study, loans, or other special awards.
