RCTC is proud to offer the U.S. Department of Education's Direct Loan program for our students. Before applying for a Direct Loan, all students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The Federal Direct Loan is available to all students, regardless of income level. The Direct Loan program includes two loan types: Subsidized and Unsubsidized. The U.S. Department of Education will be your lender when you borrow from the Direct Loan Program. See the Loan Comparison Chart for more information about these loan types.
If you have not been awarded a loan, but wish to borrow, please contact James Scott by email or by phone at (507)285-7267.
Students complete the entire loan acceptance process, online, using their RCTC Web Portal (e-services) access.
First, log onto your Web Portal Account. From the left-hand menu, select
"Financial Aid" and then "Loans". Click on each tab, in order, to complete the loan request process. The tabs are as follows:
If you have questions regarding this process or if your loan status does not change to "Certified" within 2 weeks of your submission, please contact James Scott in the Financial Aid Office either by email or by phone at (507)285-7267.
