How to Make Your Deposit
To make your deposit online, you’ll need to access your myRider student portal. Enter your domain username ([email protected]) and RIDER KEY password. If you have not yet claimed your RIDER KEY, click the claim link on the myRider page and follow the prompts.
Deposits received after the due date will be accepted on a space-available basis. If you pay online, you will not need to submit the Admission Decision Form.
Your $200 tuition deposit is non-refundable.
If you plan to live on campus, you must:
- Submit your $200 non-refundable housing deposit online or via check.
- Check your email for instructions on how to select your room. (This is available around March.)
- Housing for the first year is guaranteed if all deposits and forms are received by the deposit deadline. Housing is assigned on a space-available basis to students whose deposits are received after the deadline.
Please note, your housing and tuition deposits are not refundable.
- Visit the myRider Portal
- Click “If you have not claimed your RIDER KEY, do that here”.
- Enter your Bronc ID, Last Name, and Date of Birth.
- Read and accept Rider University’s Rights and Responsibilities of Users policy.
- Retrieve your username. Please take note of this username and keep it in a safe place. You will use it to log into your myRider portal.
