Financial Aid Counselors

We encourage you to correspond directly with your financial aid counselor to ask questions. Undergraduate and graduate* counselors are assigned based on the first letter of your last name, as illustrated in the tables below.

Permanent residents and eligible non-citizens may apply for federal and institutional need-based aid and should contact their counselor based on the alpha-assignment listed below.

International students, other than Canadian or Mexican citizens, are not eligible to apply for federal or institutional need-based aid. Please contact the Office of Admissions at admit@admissions.rochester.edu to discuss merit scholarship opportunities.

*Students in the following programs are assigned to one specific counselor. All other students are assigned based on the first letter of their last name:

  • School of Nursing
  • Post-Bacc/Pre-Med program
  • non-matriculated students (graduate & undergraduate)
  • International undergraduates, Canadian & Mexican citizens, Simon International Graduates
  • HEOP
  • Military benefits (including ROTC & VA Benefits)
