  • The part-time grant voucher must be completed every semester and is due to Student Administrative Services within 10 days of the start of each semester (the voucher can be obtained by contacting SAS);
  • Payment in full or an approved payment plan must be received along with the voucher.
Students who are receiving any form of financial assistance, including, but not limited to grant, scholarship, discounted tuition, loans and tuition remission or employer reimbursement, are not eligible.
Insurance Costs

All full-time and/or residential students are required to have some type of health insurance. Rockford University uses a “mandatory with waiver” system. Students will be charged the health insurance fee, and the fee waived when proof of insurance (copy of card, front and back) and the fee waived when the online waiver form is completed.
