Financial Services

For the purposes of financial aid, you may be eligible to apply for the following student financial aid programs:

  • Direct Loans (unsubsidized)
  • Direct Graduate PLUS Loans
  • Veterans Educational Benefits
  • Military Tuition Assistance
  • Employer reimbursement

You will need to do the following to apply for financial aid:

  • Obtain an FSA ID at https://fsaid.ed.gov and fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Make sure to include the University of the Rockies school code: G35453;
  • Complete the Master Promissory Note (MPN) and Entrance Counseling;
  • Review and sign the award letter; and
  • Complete any additional paperwork requested by the Financial Aid Office.

  • Federal Student Aid Eligibility
    To be eligible for most types of financial aid, you must:

    • be accepted into a degree program*;
    • file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA);
    • be enrolled at least half-time in coursework that will count
    • towards the student’s degree each term;
    • maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress or meet probationary requirements (see SAP policy in the University of the Rockies Academic Catalog);
    • be a U.S. citizen or eligible noncitizen;

    Incarcerated students are not eligible for financial aid.


    Application Deadlines and Renewal of Aid
    The annual application priority deadline for financial aid is June 1. Applications will be accepted after this date but may not receive priority. Financial aid is not automatically renewed every year: you must re-apply by filing the FAFSA and other paperwork as necessary. The Master Promissory Note (MPN) is good for 10 years unless you change schools.


    Tuition Payment Policy

    Your tuition and fees are due according to the terms and conditions of your selected Payment Option. An exception may be made if you have completed all required financial aid paperwork prior to the start of the term and your financial aid is significant enough to cover all current term charges. There will also be a limited exception for those students using tuition reimbursement, military tuition assistance or direct bill as their method of payment. For students taking advantage of their Veterans benefits, payment is deferred for the first 60 days of continuous enrollment in a degree program. You are responsible for the amount that financial aid does not cover and it must be paid in full on or before the first week of the each course.

    Acceptable forms of payment are:

    • Cash
    • Personal check
    • Money order
    • Credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express)

    You are encouraged to speak to your Academic Advisor if you are unable to pay the balance owed. University of the Rockies will withhold transcripts, degree verifications, and grade reports until accounts are paid in full.
