Financial Aid Forms


Once you have completed the FAFSA application, the CR financial aid office may send you an email requesting additional documents. You may also login to your WebAdvisor account and check ‘myFinaid’ to see if there are any missing documents (allow 1-2 weeks after submitting a form electronically for it to show as 'received' in myFinaid). Please only submit documents that are requested. Feel free to contact us at finaid@redwoods.edu if you have any questions or need assistance!
