About Rivier College

A small, private, Catholic college in the scenic city of Nashua, New Hampshire, Rivier College prepares students for thriving careers with its professional bachelor’s and graduate degrees and adult degree programs.

Rivier also offers many financial aid and tuition assistance options so that eligible students, regardless of finances, may attend.

Rivier’s undergraduate degrees are comprised of such fields as:

*Business Management
*Finance
*Elementary Education
*Criminal Justice
*Nursing
*Pre-Medicine
*Pre-Law

Rivier also awards more than 40 master’s degrees and graduate certificates in such fields as:

*Business
*Computer Science
*Education
*Nursing

These same fields of study may be found in the adult degree division, which accommodates older learners by providing online and evening courses.

Since the school is small, the classes generally remain small as well, which makes for a much more intimate and efficient learning environment.

So that finances are not a factor for students who wish to attend, Rivier awards merit scholarships based on academic performance as well as need-based loans and grants. Tuition payment plans are also available. Students interested in need-based aid will need to fill out a FAFSA form.

Since Rivier has a rolling admissions policy, students may apply at anytime throughout the year. In addition to an application, students will need to submit transcripts from high school or previously attended colleges. Letters of recommendation and a personal statement are also used to evaluate prospective students.
