Step 1: Please visit with an Advisor to determine eligibility and apply for a RAK award. The Advisor will ensure you’re eligible and inform you on the steps that need to be taken.

Step 2: If eligible, you will be asked to provide documentation of said need (bill, a lease, an estimate, invoice, etc.).

Step 3: With an advisor, you will be walked through the application and submit for approval.

Step 4: The student will be notified if their application was approved.

Step 5: If the student is approved the payment will be made payable to the third party.
