Tuition for Rochester Employees

University of Rochester Employees may be eligible for tuition benefits. To determine what, if any, tuition benefits you are eligible for, please contact the Benefits Office at (585) 275-2084. If eligible, complete an employee tuition waiver and then proceed to register online (link to employees registration page). Employees will be billed for any remaining tuition not covered by the employee tuition waiver.

Financial Aid

Loans are the primary type of aid available to help pay for summer classes. Students can choose to borrow either a federal loan or a private student loan, while a parent may borrow a federal PLUS loan.

In order to be eligible for a federal student or parent loan, a student must:

  • Be enrolled for at least six credit hours over the course of the summer
  • Have completed all application requirements to be considered for federal aid
  • Be enrolled in a degree-seeking program

Students must not have used their full federal loan eligibility during the academic year and have eligibility still available in order to use a federal student loan. For example, juniors are eligible to receive a maximum of $7,500 between their subsidized and unsubsidized federal loans during the fall and spring semesters. If they only use $5,500 during the academic year, they will still have $2,000 in federal loan eligibility that they could use during the summer semester.
