Financial Aid 

Rockhurst University is pleased to be able to offer financial aid to students who are unable to fully cover the cost of their education. The first step in the process is to apply by filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), even if you don’t plan to accept federal aid. Your student aid report can help us to determine whether you are eligible for financial aid in the form of scholarships, loans, or grants.

Steps to file your FAFSA:

  1. Create your Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID to e-sign the FAFSA. 
  2. File your FAFSA application. Rockhurst University’s FAFSA Code is 009782.
  3. After your data has been submitted, the U.S. Department of Education will notify Rockhurst of your application.
  4. You will receive an email from the U.S. Department of Education when your FAFSA has been processed.
  5. If you are a returning student, you will receive an email reminder from the U.S. Department of Education to renew your FAFSA.

The Hybrid ABSN program will not be eligible for internal scholarships, institutional aid or Saint Luke’s Health System employee discounts at this time.
