Parents (of dependent students), to the extent that they are able, have the primary responsibility to pay for their child’s education. Students are also expected to contribute to their educational costs. Eligibility for federal grants and loans and state need-based grants is determined by filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Rockford University also requires the FAFSA to determine eligibility for need-based institutional aid.
