Graduate Part-Time Student Grant provides a $150 per credit hour discount, up to $900 per semester, to part-time degree-seeking or certification-seeking students in good academic standing, subject to these restrictions:

  • Application forms required each semester are due within 10 days after the semester begins.
  • Students who receive tuition reimbursement from outside sources are not eligible.
  • Students may not use this grant in conjunction with other scholarships or aid plans.
  • Students must be enrolled in 6 hours or less to qualify.

Not-for-profit (NFP) Grant provides a $250 per credit hour discount, up to $1500 per semester, to MBA students who are employees of public and not-for-profit organizations. The discount is available only to those currently receiving less than 50% of the cost of tuition and applies to a maximum of two courses per semester.

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.
