Student Loan Code of Conduct
University of the Rockies officers and employees involved in financial aid processes including student loans adhere to the Student Loan Code of Conduct.
Financial Aid Overview
For the purposes of Financial Aid, you may be eligible to apply for the following student financial aid programs:
- Direct Loans (unsubsidized)
- Direct Graduate PLUS Loans
- Veterans Educational Benefits
- Military Tuition Assistance
- Employer reimbursement
- Obtain a pin number at www.pin.ed.gov and fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Make sure to include the University of the Rockies school code: G35453
- Complete the Master Promissory Note (MPN) and Entrance Counseling
- Review and sign the award letter
- Complete any additional paperwork requested by the financial aid office
To be eligible for most types of financial aid, you must:
- be accepted into a degree program
- demonstrate financial need, as shown by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
- be enrolled in coursework that will count toward your degree
- maintain satisfactory academic progress or meet probationary requirements (see policy)
- students pursuing a graduate certificate are not eligible for financial aid
Incarcerated students are not eligible for financial aid.
Renewal of Aid
Financial Aid is not automatically renewed every year: you must re-apply by filing the FAFSA and other paperwork as necessary. The Master Promissory Note (MPN) is good for 10 years unless you change schools or lenders.
The Department of Education randomly selects students for verification throughout the year. If selected for verification, you must submit a verification worksheet and a signed/dated copy of the applicable year's tax returns to the Financial Aid Office in order to complete the financial aid application. A copy of the verification worksheet can be obtained from the Financial Aid Office. Failure to comply with this Federal requirement may result in loss of eligibility for federal financial aid during that award year.
Non-Degree Seeking Student
A student must be enrolled as a degree-seeking student in a program in order to qualify for financial aid.
