Welcome to the Office of Financial Aid

We're committed to helping you find all the financial aid options available to you. Because at UAH, we believe your focus should be on your education – not how you’re going to pay for it.

At UAH, more than 2/3 of our students receive financial assistance of some kind. New freshmen and transfer students are automatically eligible for academic scholarship consideration upon admission. No separate application is required.

Financial aid decisions delayed by FAFSA timeline

FAFSA Updates: The U.S. Department of Education’s new Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application for the 2024-25 academic year is now open. The new application expands eligibility for federal student aid. If you have not yet done so, we encourage you to complete your 2024-25 FAFSA application today.

Timeline: The U.S. Department of Education announced recently that colleges and universities will not begin receiving Institutional Student Information Records (ISIR) until sometime in March, possibly later. Like all other colleges and universities, we cannot begin making decisions about financial aid until we receive this information. That means notifications about federal student aid and some need-based scholarships, typically sent to students in January, will be significantly delayed.

Financial Aid Impact: The delay from the U.S. Department of Education will NOT affect our consideration of your application for federal student aid and need-based scholarships.
