    Riverwood University’s Scholarships Get Encouraging Response in GCC

    In the past couple of years, a huge number of students in the region have managed to avail scholarships offered by Riverwood University, which have helped them to earn a smooth learning experience.

    May 10, 2014: Riverwood University’s financial support programs are becoming increasingly popular, as the university has now announced its scholarships to have received an overwhelming response in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region. According to the university, the number of students, who have availed scholarships in the region, has gone up by 30 percent as compared to the same period last year.

    A huge number of online students in the GCC region have managed to avail several scholarships offered by the university. These scholarships have been assisting students in obtaining their future objectives through an affordable and smooth online learning platform. “The value of an individual scholarship package differs based on Riverwood University’s financial support policies and the requirements of the students. However, majority of the GCC students, who have successfully received scholarships, are those who were having issues in managing their tuition fee during their online learning at the university,” said Sarah W. Patton, Spokesperson of Riverwood University.

    Given the exploding demand for online education in the GCC region, all these scholarships get an interrupted support through the ‘Riverwood Scholarship Fund.’ “We don’t just offer scholarships; we offer a range of scholarship packages for our students, allowing them to make easy career choices. This is probably one of the few reasons why students in the GCC region are getting more inclined towards our offered scholarships,” Patton added.

    Riverwood University also has ‘Pay In Installments’ option for students that allows them to get up to 40 percent off on their program fee, provided they pay their registration fee along with the tuition fee at the time of registration. The university also facilitates GCC students through credit transfer facility, helping them manage their educational expenses by accepting credits for courses they have already studied. GCC Students can also save up to 25 percent of their tuition fee via the ‘Referral Program.’

    Riverwood University is an international and 100 percent online university, offering accredited degree programs around the world. The university’s core aim has always been to support students through affordable and flexible online learning programs without comprising on their quality. Riverwood University offers online programs in 16 different fields of study and 71 major subjects. It allows students to advance academically and professionally through their offered online programs. Meanwhile, financial assistance and career placement services at the university help students throughout their academic journey and even beyond.
