Native American Students
Students wishing to apply for tribal or agency grant funds must submit their tribal or agency needs analysis form to the office of Student Financial Aid for completion. After you have completed the FAFSA and submitted all required information to the RSC Financial Aid Office, we will complete the needs analysis form and forward it directly to the tribal or agency office.
In order for us to complete the school certification on the needs analysis form, you must complete the following steps:
- Be admitted to Rose State College as a regular student.
- Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You may complete this on-line through www.fafsa.gov
- Submit all required documents to the Office of Student Financial Aid
The RSC Office of Student Financial Aid must receive all requested documents before the needs analysis form may be completed.
To help the processing of your needs analysis and tribal application, you should:
- Submit the FAFSA as early as possible and no later than April 1 prior to the academic year for which you are applying to receive assistance.
- Submit all requested documentation to the College or your tribal/agency education office. If required forms are not submitted in a timely manner, you may not be funded because you missed deadlines.
- Keep copies of all documents that you submit.
It is your responsibility to begin and complete your application process in time to meet your tribal/agency deadlines. Failure to do so may result in loss of funding. Contact your tribe or agency for their specific deadline.

Since each tribe handles its funding in different ways, you should consult with your tribe regarding when/how funds will be awarded and disbursed. Generally, funds are sent to the College’s Cashiers Office and a student disbursement is prepared for the student.
