Student's planning to attend Feather River College should be advised that we can only discuss financial aid with the student. If the student would like to authorize someone else (parent, relative, spouse, etc.) to have access to their information, they must complete and submit the appropriate Student Information Release (FERPA) form for the academic year (2018-2019 / 2019-2020) in which the student is attending or plans to attend. Important: this form is valid for one academic year (July 1 to June 30) only and must be completed each academic year that the student wants their information to be released.

If you are unsure what form(s) you need, please check your Financial Aid Status (2018-19 / 2019-20) in the Student Portal (MyFRC). If you have questions about your financial aid file and/or the forms you are required to submit, please contact our office. It is very important that you complete the appropriate form(s) for the academic year because one academic year's form cannot be used in place of another academic year's form. In addition, please do not submit forms or documents that were not requested as it may delay processing.
