An Investment, and it’s Worth It

At first glance, we know RU may seem more expensive than other colleges. Don’t be deterred. Our financial aid team is committed to helping you make your Rockhurst education a reality.

Once you apply for financial assistance – as 98 percent of our students do – we will create a custom financial aid package for you. This will include financial assistance based on your FAFSA, scholarships, institutional aid and more.

The Rockhurst experience is worth the investment. We’re proud of what we offer. You should be, too. Why? Because the numbers are in and RU ranks No. 4 among Missouri colleges for return on investment, and in the top 17 percent nationwide. And starting salaries for our graduates rank No. 1 among Kansas City-area universities and No. 3 among Missouri colleges. That’s ROI in action.

How to Apply
To be considered for aid, the first step is to file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Explore scholarships and even calculate estimated institutional aid.
