Tuition Assistance

Over $600,000 in tuition assistance is awarded to students each year based on need.  Rice uses a third party, FACTS, to evaluate eligibility in order to administer financial aid objectively and with consistency.  Many factors are considered when evaluating financial need including income, size of family, assets/liabilities, and living expenses.  Applicants are notified by mid-April of the award decision.

Students enrolling for the 2018-19 academic year and requesting tuition assistance must submit a completed FACTS financial aid application with a $30 application fee by March 15, 2018.  Commonly asked questions about the financial aid application process can be answered here.  Otherwise, contact Andy Bond in the Rice Finance office at (802) 862-6521 ext. 206 or


Tuition Payment Options

  • Tuition paid in full by May 15 ($100 discount for families paying full tuition)
  • Tuition paid in two installments in July and December
  • Tuition paid in 11 monthly installments, July through May

All tuition payments are made via FACTS Tuition Management System.

*International student tuition fee is available upon request.  Tuition does not fully cover the cost of a Rice education.  Contributions made to the Rice Annual Fund fulfill that difference and allow Rice to manage tuition growth.
