Rivier University offers students a variety of payment options, as well as many merit-based scholarship programs. Rivier’s commitment to students is also exemplified through our institutional need-based grant program. Rivier University students benefit from more than $13 million in need-based and merit-based Rivier grant funding.

Our staff is committed to making financing a college education possible. In keeping with Rivier’s commitment to peace and social justice, the Student Financial Services Office awards need-based funds, utilizing a fair and equitable awarding policy, that carry with the student for their entire degree program.

In addition to Student Financial Services staff, online assistance is available to help you complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), apply for student and parent loans, search for scholarships, complete entrance and exit loan counseling, and more! Our commitment to technologically advanced delivery systems to help students through the financial aid process sets Rivier’s Financial Aid Office apart from the rest.

We welcome student questions: We encourage students to contact our office at Adrienne Hall for assistance. We are available to answer general questions. Students with specific questions about their financial aid award or eligibility should consult with their assigned Rivier financial aid counselor. If you would like to meet, please call first to make an appointment or click on the “Book Appointment” link to the right. Your counselor may not be available on a walk-in basis.
