Your Education - Made Possible

Financial aid is generally provided by or through federal and state agencies, foundations, corporations, and the University. Grants are regarded as "gift" assistance and need not be repaid, although they may carry certain provisions. Loans that are offered can be repaid over an extended period after the student graduates. Where aid is offered in the form of a work study job, the student is paid an hourly rate for work actually performed. Please confirm with the financial aid office if you are eligible for Federal Work-Study.

Financial aid at the graduate/professional school level is based upon enrollment. Aid is awarded on the basis of "financial need" as determined by federal guidelines. The University expects that students and their families will contribute to the fullest of their ability to meet educational expenses. Students who feel that they will be in need of assistance should request information and applications from the Rowan Stratford Campus Student Financial Aid Office as soon as accepted for admission.
