What types of financial aid exist?

Contact via Phone and Email: Closed to In-person Traffic

The Financial Aid Office is temporarily closed to walk-in traffic due to statewide and local measures to contain the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). The call center is operational and staff are available to take your call Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Once restrictions have lifted, our office will be located in the new Enrollment Services Center on the UAA main campus.

Asking yourself if you can afford UAA?

We can help answer that question! Did you know a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required to apply for all federal, state, and need-based institutional aid? In addition, for all State of Alaska grants and scholarships, your FAFSA must be submitted by June 30th prior to the beginning of the academic year. In addition, the State of Alaska and UAA use your FAFSA data to determine your eligibility for state and school aid, and some private financial aid providers may use your FAFSA information to determine whether you qualify for their aid.
