Undergraduate Financial Aid & Scholarships

Rockhurst University is committed to student success. Each year, over 98% of our students utilize financial aid to support their world-class RU education and invest in themselves. Over $30 million per year in scholarships, grants, work-study and federal student loans are available to qualified students who file the FAFSA. Once you are admitted to Rockhurst and apply for financial aid, we will create a custom financial aid package for you.

The Rockhurst experience is worth the investment. We’re proud of what we offer, and you should be too. RU ranks No. 4 among Missouri colleges for return on investment, and in the top 17% nationwide. Starting salaries for our graduates rank No. 1 among Kansas City-area universities and No. 3 among Missouri colleges.

That’s ROI in action.
