How do I pay for college?

The financial aid program is an integral part of the admissions process. For many students and families, the costs of a private college may seem out of reach and financial aid is a very important determining factor. Our goal is to do our best so that no deserving student is denied a quality Roanoke College education because of a lack of funds.

What other funding options could I pursue:

Tuition Management Payment Plan :
Many students and parents have found payment plans to be a convenient way to spread college costs out over a ten month period. Roanoke College participates with one outside agency that offers payment plans to all of our students.  Their phone number is 1-888-713-7234. The only cost to the family for the plan is a yearly set up fee. The cost for this origination fee is $65 for TMS. No interest is charged during the payment period. For additional information, or a paper application, contact the Business Office toll free at 1-877-826-9356 or email sjackson@roanoke.edu.

I am eligible for Veteran's Benefits, what should I do to ensure that Roanoke is aware?

Roanoke College is proud to support our veterans with tuition benefits.  Please refer to our Veterans' Benefits webpage for more information on how you might be able to take advantage of these programs.  Please note that if you receive additional funding from the Post 911/Yellow Ribbon Program (at 100% eligibility), your financial aid award will be adjusted.  All previously awarded College $'s will be replaced with a tuition scholarship that will cover tuition and fees.
