Financial Aid & Scholarships

Financial Aid

The primary objective of financial aid is to assist students and their parents in meeting basic educational costs. All financial aid programs at Renton Technical College are administered in accordance with established state and federal regulations and policies. At the core of these policies is the belief that financing a student's education is the primary responsibility of the student and his/her family. If combined resources are not sufficient to cover expenses, a student may be eligible for financial aid. A student's financial aid award is based on a demonstrated financial need. That is calculated as follows:

Estimated Cost of Attendance - Expected Family Contribution (EFC) = FINANCIAL AID NEEDED
