Re-Enrollment Process

Rivermont Collegiate uses a process called Continuous Enrollment, which means a student’s enrollment continues year to year until graduation or the family informs us of intent to withdraw. Continuous Enrollment simplifies the process because there are no forms to fill out. Enrollment is automatic. In March, a $500 enrollment deposit is charged to every returning family that has not notified the school of its intent to leave. Families have until May 1 to notify the school of their intent to leave. After May 1, families are committed to enrollment for the following year.

Families who receive tuition assistance must re-apply every year. There are limited funds available for tuition assistance, and it is awarded based on eligibility until funds are exhausted. Unless a family experiences a large financial change during the year, they can expect the same award (or very close to it), year to year. For this reason, families re-applying for tuition assistance should pay close attention to deadlines for submitting their financial aid applications and tax returns. Complete instructions for re-applying for tuition assistance can be found on the Tuition/Financial Aid page of this website.

Apply for ESA Funds

(IA K-12 Families Only)

April 16 – June 30

Iowa K-12 families have from April 16 – June 30 to apply for ESA funding through the Iowa Students First Act.

State Funding Available for Iowa Families

The Students First Act, introduced by Governor Reynolds and signed into law on Jan. 24, 2023, makes state funding available to every K-12 student in Iowa. The bill establishes a framework and funding for education savings accounts, which eligible families may use to cover tuition, fees, and other qualified education expenses at accredited nonpublic schools in Iowa like Rivermont Collegiate.

Rivermont K-12 families living in Iowa may qualify for Education Savings Account (ESA) funds through the Students First Act.

Rivermont requires all K-12 Iowa families applying for financial aid to apply for ESA funding, regardless of whether they think they will qualify.

Families can apply for funding from April 16 to June 30 for the 2024-2025 school year.

The link will be available here when the application opens.

Families have until May 1 to withdraw without penalty. Families choosing to withdraw after May 1 may be subject to the terms of the Tuition Protection Plan.
