Types of Financial Aid
There are several types of aid available to Roseman University students. We have outlined the different aid programs available at Roseman below and you can visit the Department of Education’s StudentAid.gov site for more detailed information on all federal student aid programs.
Several Roseman scholarships are available to students. You must check with the program you are interested in for deadlines and requirements. There are many outside scholarships available, the Financial Aid Office has listed a few suggestions under the Scholarships tab.
Grants are free money and do not have to be repaid. Grants are awarded to students with high financial need. You must complete the FAFSA application to determine eligibility. Roseman University is able to provide eligible students with the Pell Grant and the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG). The Pell Grant is only available to Undergraduates working toward their first Bachelor’s degree who also demonstrate a high financial need. To receive FSEOG Undergraduates must be eligible to receive a Pell Grant and have exceptional financial need.
Federal Work-Study (FWS) provides part-time jobs for undergraduate and graduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. The program encourages community service work and work related to the recipient’s course of study.
Loans are funds that are borrowed and must be repaid. There are several different types of loans for students, including federal and private. Plan carefully if you choose to borrow a student loan. While loans may be necessary in order for you to attend college, students should borrow conservatively. If you are offered a student loan as part of your financial aid award, you have the option to accept, reduce, or decline the loan.
