A Look at Your Award Letter

As you read your award notification, here is some information to help you. If you find any incorrect information or have any questions, please let us know!

Award Guidelines and Estimated Costs

Enrollment
There is an assumption of full-time enrollment for aid purposes and students must be enrolled at least half-time to receive aid. If you enroll less than full-time but at least half-time, the aid paid to you (except Direct Loans) will be reduced based on your level of enrollment. We will monitor your enrollment level throughout your award period and changes may result in reduction or cancellation of previously offered aid, even after funds have been disbursed to you.

Estimated Cost of Attendance at RHIT
The estimated amount it costs to attend RHIT for the period covered by your Award Notification - it includes tuition and fees as charged on your student bill, housing costs (on and off campus) and other costs which can include books, supplies, laptop (freshmen year only) and personal expenses. Your actual expenses may vary; the Office of Financial Aid will ask the appropriate departments/students on a regular basis to determine some of these personal costs and estimate what a typical budget is for financial aid purposes. Below, you will find a chart of the Cost of Attendance for 2018-2019.
