Roger Williams offers both need- and merit-based aid.
All incoming students are eligible for merit-based aid that will be determined by the level of academic rigor of their high school curriculum, cumulative GPA, and either standardized test scores* or a graded piece of high school work that they are most proud of or a short written statement on a predetermined topic.
RWU merit scholarships are renewed each year as long as the student meets certain academic requirements.
The average new student financial aid package is $20,819. (Please note this includes student loans and work study.)
