Determine Your Enrollment Status

The scholarship application contains a question that refers to your student enrollment status for the upcoming academic year. The question gives you three options to choose from:

  • I will be attending MVC, NC or RCC.
  • I will be transferring to a 4-year university.
  • I will be attending MVC, NC or RCC in the fall and transferring to a 4-year university in the spring.

Select the Correct Status on Your Application

Please pay close attention this question because it will determine your status as a continuing or transfer student. If you are incorrect with your status as a continuing or
transfer student, your eligibility for some scholarships will be affected.

  • If you will be remaining at and attending any college within Riverside Community College District (MVC, NC or RCC) during the upcoming/next fall and spring semesters, you are classified as a Continuing student and you may apply for scholarships for “Continuing students” or for “Continuing and Transferring students.”
  • If you will be leaving RCCD by transferring to and attending a four-year college or university during the upcoming/next academic year, you are classified as a Transferring student and you may apply for scholarships for “Transferring students” or “Continuing and Transferring students.”
  • If you will be attending Riverside Community College District for the upcoming/next fall semester and transferring to a four-year college or university for the next spring semester, you are classified as a Continuing/Transferring student and you may apply for scholarships for “Continuing students” or for “Continuing and Transferring students” or for “Transferring students.”

Enrollment Status Choices

If you were awarded a scholarship as a student continuing at RCCD based on the information provided on your scholarship application and you instead transfer to a fouryear university for the upcoming/next academic year or you had planned to transfer but now will be continuing at RCCD, please notify the scholarship coordinator in the Student Financial Services office at your home college. You may or may not be eligible for the scholarship depending on the donor’s criteria. 

I will be attending MVC, NC or RCC

Choosing the option “I will be attending MVC, NC or RCC” indicates you are a continuing student for the upcoming academic year. Please be very careful with this option as some scholarships are for transferring students ONLY. If you choose this option, you will NOT be considered for scholarships that are for transfer students.

I will be transferring to a 4-year university

Choosing the option “I will be transferring to a 4-year university” indicates you are a transfer student for the upcoming academic year. Please be very careful with this option as some scholarships are for continuing students ONLY. If you choose this option, you will NOT be considered for scholarships that are for continuing students.

I will be attending MVC, NC or RCC in the fall and transferring to a 4-year university in the spring

Choosing the option “I will be attending MVC, NC or RCC in the fall and transferring to a 4-year university in the spring” indicates you are transferring mid-year. You will be considered for scholarships for either continuing or transferring students. However, if the scholarship is for continuing students only, you will not receive the spring portion of the scholarship funds. If the scholarship is for transferring students only, it will be sent to the transfer school in the spring semester. If the scholarship is for continuing and transferring students, you will receive the fall portion of the scholarship as a continuing student at MVC, NC or RCC and the spring portion will be sent to the transfer school. Or, you can request that all the funds be transferred to you 4-year university in the spring.
