Freshman Academic Scholarship Calculator

You’ve worked hard to get to where you are today – now get ready to see the pay off. Enter your info in the scholarship calculator below, and in just a few seconds, you’ll know which merit-based Rockhurst scholarships you qualify for. It’s that easy.

Merit-based scholarships are offered in three categories: competitive, academic and talent. Competitive scholarships are awarded based on interviews, which are invitation-only. Academic scholarships are awarded based on GPA and ACT/SAT scores (if submitted), and every student who applies to Rockhurst is offered some kind of academic scholarship. Talent scholarships are based on abilities in arts, athletics, service, etc. Review specifics regarding each scholarship type.

Rockhurst offers test-optional admissions. This means that your test scores can only help – never hurt – your scholarship levels. Try adding your test scores to the scholarship calculator to see how they might increase your award.

We want you to know that 100 percent of our undergraduate students receive financial assistance, whether in the form of scholarships or financial aid. We never want our prospective students to feel that Rockhurst isn't for them based on tuition prices - we'll work with each and every student to find a solution that best fits their needs.

Keep in mind that you can receive more than one scholarship, but never both competitive and academic scholarships. And the total institutional award from RU cannot exceed the cost of tuition.

Please enter your ACT or SAT score and your GPA (on a 4.0 scale), then click "Calculate".

Merit-based scholarships are awarded pending verification of official documentation and your acceptance to the University. The information provided by the calculator is not a guarantee of financial aid. *The last ACT exam date for scholarship upgrade eligibility is the February exam of your senior year.

*These scholarships are for Bachelor’s Degree seeking students only. If you are obtaining an Associate’s Degree, view our current degree offerings for more information.

*Freshmen and sophomore nursing students apply for and receive financial assistance from Rockhurst University and pay the Rockhurst tuition rate. Junior and senior students in the nursing program will pay the Saint Luke’s BSN tuition rate, meaning their Rockhurst scholarships and grants will no longer be available. Federal and state aid is still applicable, along with Nursing Foundation scholarships, any outside scholarships or funding options.
