Financing College

College is expensive, but don't let that stop you from achieving your dreams.  There are options available.  Your first step is to fill out the FAFSA (free application for federal student aid).  It is free and easy to do online.  This application will explore options in federal grants, work study, and student loans. Your application also helps determine eligibility for state and local aid.  When you are ready to fill out your FAFSA, visit this website to get started.

UCA will be holding a FAFSA Information event on October 12th at 7:00 PM for both parents and students to get more information.   See the UCAW Page for more information. 



In addition to financial aid, there are many scholarship opportunities.  Knowing how to get started can be a daunting task.  The following resources can help you on this journey  Click on the picture for more information.
