Payment Policy

Tuition and fees are due at the time of registration (either regular registration or mail-in registration). Payment can be made online and by check, cash, money order or credit card.

Tuition and Registration
Please note that registration is not considered complete until students have paid tuition.

Full tuition, or the first installment on the deferred payment plan, must be in the Business Office no later than the posted dates. All late payments are assessed a $150 late fee. Credit cards, money orders or checks are accepted, and students who pay by mail should consider their cancelled check or bank card statement as their receipt. Students who do not pay tuition or make appropriate arrangements by the dates indicated face being administratively withdrawn from classes.

Mail Payments to:
Rockhurst University Student Accounts
1100 Rockhurst Road
Massman Hall #109
Kansas City, MO 64110-2561

If you fail to pay or appropriately settle your bill by the deadline, your registration will be canceled and your seats may be given to students on waiting lists.

Deferred Payment Plan
For students who are unable to pay the full amount due at the time of registration, Rockhurst offers a deferred payment plan which requires 1/3 of the total charges, plus a $75 deferred payment fee, at the time of registration. The remaining balance would be in two installments due Oct. 1 and Nov. 1 for the fall semester and March 1 and April 1 for the spring semester. There is no deferred payment plan for the summer sessions.

Tuition Management System
For full-time undergraduate students whose families wish to pay full-year costs on a monthly basis, the college also endorses the Tuition Management System (TMS). With this plan, for an annual fee of $75 added to the first payment, costs can be in 10 equal monthly payments beginning in June prior to the August term.

Tuition Assistance and Reimbursement
Students whose employers have made arrangements with Rockhurst's Business Office to pay the tuition should bring completed authorization at the time of registration (or send the authorization form with the mail-in registration form if the mail-in option is used). If the company payment plan does not provide for full payment, the student should be prepared to appropriately settle the balance (either pay the balance or use the deferred payment plan). Employee reimbursement plans are not accepted as payment plans. Students who have these plans available to them may pay in full or use the deferred plan.

Financial Aid
Students receiving financial assistance should consult with the Financial Aid Office to verify their aid package. Students must have a current FAFSA on file at the time of registration before any financial assistance can be considered in the payment of tuition.
