Don’t miss out: Making college more affordable
We have launched several new scholarship initiatives to help more students afford college. We have more scholarships available than ever before—and more options to meet many students’ needs.
Here’s what you need to know for 2016 summer and fall admission:
- Complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) today! Even if you don’t believe you will qualify for aid, we encourage you to complete the FAFSA. Most people do qualify for something. (Please note: UA’s school code is 003123). You can file the FAFSA even if your taxes are not completed. Use estimates and and make your corrections after you file your tax return.
Students who met the March 1, 2016 priority FAFSA date for the 2016-17 academic year will be considered for every financial aid program for which they may be eligible while funds are available. Students whose FAFSAs were submitted to the U.S. Department of Education after March 1 will not be eligible for federal university-administered funds, such as Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Federal Work-Study, and Federal Perkins Loan, unless there are funds remaining after students who met the deadline are awarded.
- Complete and submit the Private (Endowed) Scholarship Application by May 1st. There is a separate application for new freshman undergraduate students, transfer undergraduate students, and continuing undergraduate students.
- Student advisory: No need to pay for financial aid services.
