At GRCC, a broad range of financial aid resources is available to students. By combining federal, state, college and community-based resources, the Financial Aid Office staff will design a financial aid package to meet the student's financial need as established by the Student Aid Report (SAR).
The financial aid resources include:
Students must repay loans; but scholarships, grants and employment are considered gifts or earnings and need not be repaid.
Off-campus and wireless users must logon on with their last name and 7-digit GRCC Raider number.
"Is higher education cultivating the next financial bubble? This CNBC Original documentary goes inside America's student loan industry - a seemingly benign system that could potentially echo the mortgage meltdown of recent years, since it displays little or no regard for a borrower's ability to repay. Viewers meet students, lenders, school administrators, and American families with firsthand knowledge of the brewing crisis - as well as U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, who addresses concerns that the nation's college debt load is creating a new class of borrowers and debtors. The program also examines Sallie Mae, which is remaking itself into a servicing company for both public and private loans, and a company called HigherOne, which allows students to access borrowed funds in the form of a debit MasterCard. The dramatic rise of for-profit universities is also a topic."
