Financial Aid
Students are eligible for State and Federal aids. Apply for financial aid by filing your FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov

Employee Reimbursement /Tuition Deferment Program
Rockford University will defer your tuition payment until after you have completed the semester to allow time for your employer to reimburse you. The program is limited to reimbursable tuition costs only; registration fees and textbook costs are not eligible for deferment, even though you may receive reimbursement for these costs. Please ask for a Tuition Deferment Form at the Office of Graduate Studies.
