Academic Excellence & Real-World Experience… At an Exceptional Value

River City Leadership College students have all of the privileges of a SAGU student at a fraction of the cost. For a traditional 15 credit hour academic year, RCLC students can expect a 55% savings.

Federal Aid is available for students that qualify. For the FAFSA, students should enter SAGU’s school code (003616) to send their family’s information to SAGU for consideration.

Private Scholarships

There are many private scholarships available — especially for incoming freshmen — and you should apply for these as early as possible. Scholarship opportunities can be found in your church, local community organizations, your parent/guardian’s employer, and locations nationwide. Each will have a unique application process. However, it is important to be wary of scholarship scams. You should never pay a fee to an organization to find scholarship opportunities for you or to complete an application for a scholarship that is offered.

To find private scholarship opportunities, we recommend talking to your guidance counselor and checking out free resources like FastWeb,, BigFuture, or to learn about more scholarship opportunities for which you may be eligible.

Financial FAQs

Q: Can I apply for financial aid to attend River City Leadership College?

A: You can apply for Federal Financial Aid to help pay for college.

Q: What is FAFSA?

A: The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a way for you to receive financial help in paying for college.

Q: How do I apply for financial aid?

A: Through our partnership with SAGU, you are able to have full access to Federal Financial Aid. When you file for FAFSA, use the Southwestern Assemblies of God University School Code: 003616.

Q: When should I apply for financial aid?

A: The earlier that you apply for Federal Assistance, the likelier you are to be awarded more money. Most of the money available is on a first-come, first-serve basis, so you’ll want to apply for financial aid as soon as you can, even if you haven’t yet been accepted as a River City Leadership College or SAGU student.

You can start filing for FAFSA as early as January 1 for the following academic year. The priority deadline is March 2nd. If you are waiting on your tax information for the current year, you can update your FAFSA at a later date when you receive your updated tax information. In the meantime, you can use your tax information from the previous year to go ahead and apply for FAFSA. Again, the earlier you do it, the better your chance is for more money.

Q: What if I’m undecided about where I’ll attend school?  Should I still complete my FAFSA early?

A: You should still apply for FAFSA as early as you can (January 1). You can mark more than one school on your FAFSA application if you aren’t yet fully decided on which school you will attend. This way, you won’t have to reapply for FAFSA if you choose to go to school at a different place than your original plan.
