Financial aid is available for students pursuing online bachelor’s or master’s degrees. We currently offer financial aid in the form of federal student loans. If you are a current or future online student with Rider and are interested in receiving a federal student loan, follow the process outlined below. You can also obtain a paper FAFSA by calling the Federal Student Aid Center at 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243).
ATTENTION NEW STUDENTS:
Although we cannot process financial aid awards until a student is admitted, our financial aid office recommends students file a FAFSA as soon as possible.
You can fill out the financial aid forms in approximately one hour. Links to the forms and instructions on how to complete them are detailed below. You can complete all of these forms online. Please ensure that ALL forms have been completed prior to your acceptance to ensure timely processing.
STEPS TO APPLY FOR FEDERAL STUDENT LOANS:
- Apply for admission to Rider University
- Request a federal PIN. This acts as the electronic signature.
- Complete the FAFSA at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/. Include the Rider University school code, 002628, in the application.
- Once we receive the results of your needs analysis from the federal processor, we will design a financial aid package to meet your individual needs. You will receive an award letter from Rider outlining the various types of aid for which you are eligible.
- First time Stafford Loan borrowers must complete a master promissory note once, along with entrance counseling.
