In 2012/13, over 4,000 Rockland Community College students received more than $18 million in financial assistance to help them meet the cost of higher education. Since many students are eligible for some kind of financial aid, all students are encouraged to apply. Funds are generally available to those who can demonstrate financial need.
Financial Aid assists students and families in completing applications for federal, state and local financial aid programs and subsequently awards aid to all eligible applicants. Free personal financial aid counseling and technical assistance is available on a walk-in basis.
The Office also has a FAFSA mini-lab where students can file their financial aid applications on-line. Helpful technical guidance is provided so that the application process can be easy and error-free.
We have six members of our staff that provide a variety of services to our students:
Debra Bouabidi, Director of Financial Aid.
Madelene Aponte, Assistant Director of Financial Aid.
Karina Joseph, Financial Aid Administrator, TAP Certification Officer
Paula From, Financial Aid Counselor, Student Loans, Consortium Agreements
Elissa Silverstein, Financial Aid Counselor, Scholarships
Sue Twomey, Financial Aid Counselor, APTS Program
