Effect of Outside Assistance
There are limits to the amount of financial aid that students can receive. All funds that the Financial Aid Office awards are come from either federal or state tax dollars so we work hard to make sure that aid is being awarded to students who need it the most.
If the Financial Aid Office is notified (after an award has been made) that a student has received an outside scholarship that puts the student in an “over-award” status, we will be required adjust the award. Put simply, students cannot receive more aid than the Cost of Attendance (COA) for Front Range Community College, nor can students receive more need-based aid than the COA minus the Expected Family Contribution (EFC).
