Financial Aid Determination

Financial assistance programs at Rush University are provided to assist students who cannot otherwise afford to pay the full cost of education through their personal or family resources. In general, financial need is the basic criterion for the awarding of funds. Accordingly, students and their families will be expected to contribute toward educational expenses to the fullest extent possible. The level of the expected contributions is determined by using a standard set of criteria to analyze financial information provided by students and their families. Submission of parental data for institutional grants and loans is required for most university students. Complete information about this policy is found on the Office of Student Financial Aid website. Student Financial Aid counselors are available to consult with students and parents (with the student's authorization) on all matters regarding the financing of a Rush University education. Students and authorized parents are welcomed and encouraged to make use of these services.
