Most students today have some concern over the costs of college - despite how affordable our program can be. Thankfully, here at Rockford Career College, we have wonderful financial aid advisors to help you through the process of paying for college, how financial aid itself works, and your loan repayment options.
Heading up our financial aid department is our own expert, Denise Ackley. Whether you talk to Denise or one of our other financial aid experts, know you are dealing with knowledgeable, hard-working members who want the best for you. Students are often surprised by how much financial aid they qualify for; let us help you get all the information you need to have an informed start to college. As Denise says, it is her goal to provide every student the opportunity to attend college. Let her and her staff help you.
The tuition charge* covers costs for instruction and supervised laboratory periods; however, it does not cover the costs of books and supplies. Any future change in tuition or fee rates will be posted in various locations within the school at least one month prior to implementation and will apply to future terms. Quarterly payments in all courses are due on or before the start of each quarter, unless other financing arrangements have been made. Students are charged tuition only for the full and partial quarters that they attend. Prepaid tuition for a quarter beyond that in which a student withdraws is fully refundable.
*Our school's tuition includes services not included in some other institution's listed price. Please contact an admission's representative to learn about all the additional services at no extra cost that could be included in your tuition, such as:
