Eligible students will continue to receive their federal Title IV aid until the student has earned the total number of credits normally required for the bachelor’s degree, 126 credits. PHEAA grants are reviewed each term once the student is accepted into the integrated program. The grant amount will be determined based on the undergraduate courses a student is registered for. If the student carries at least 12 undergraduate credits, full PHEAA grants will be awarded. Part time PHEAA grants may be awarded in the fourth year if the student carries at least six undergraduate credits. For the PHEAA grant policy on enrollment status, visit www.rmu.edu/finaid.
Graduate and undergraduate loans differ in the amount of money that a student is able to borrow. Integrated program students are eligible to borrow at the graduate level once they have earned 126 credits. Students can apply for graduate level loans using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Repayment obligation for undergraduate loans will be deferred until after the graduate degree is complete.
Students are eligible to receive institutional aid for a total of 10 semesters once accepted into the integrated program. Students must maintain full-time status, which is a minimum of 12 credits each fall and spring semester, in order to continue to receive institutional aid. The 12 credits may be a combination of graduate and undergraduate course work.
Athletic scholarships are determined annually by individual coaches following NCAA regulations.
Once a student returns their enrollment agreement and they are placed on their integrated checksheet, they will be placed on the blended rate of tuition at the University effective for the very next term in which they register for classes. This tuition rate is a hybrid rate of undergraduate and graduate tuition.
Students taking 12-18 credits will be placed on the blended flat rate of tuition. Students taking less than 12 credits will pay a blended per credit rate and students taking more than 18 credits will pay the blended flat rate plus an additional charge per credit for anything over 18 credits.
If a student withdraws from the integrated program and returns to their original undergraduate program attending full time, they will be placed on the University’s regular flat rate of tuition.
Students should visit the RMU website at www.rmu.edu for current tuition charges.
