For detail FAQs about financial aid and scholarship, please visit the UA Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid.
To qualify for financial aid - grants, student loans, or work-study - students must first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov for the appropriate academic year, list The University of Arizona (Title IV School Code 001083) as one of the schools on the FAFSA, and submit the FAFSA to the federal processor.
After the Financial Aid office receives the FAFSA information, financial aid eligibility will be determined.
Students should apply for financial aid during the spring of their senior year. Seniors should file the FAFSA as soon as possible after JOctober 1st of their senior year; after that time, we recommend that students send their FAFSA by February 14th of their senior year in order to meet the March 1st priority date. Funding for various programs is limited and, as such, we recommend that students apply as soon as possible after the FAFSA becomes available on October 1st.
