UAA Financial Aid Disclosure Information
Making the decision to pursue a degree is a big step, and in choosing where to enroll,
there are many factors to consider.
The following resources are available to assist with comparing cost, financial assistance, and outcomes.
The staff of UAA Office of Student Financial Assistance are ready to assist students and their families. If you have any questions about financial aid at University of Alaska Anchorage, please contact us so that we can provide answers to your questions.
The College Scorecard
Created and hosted by the U.S. Department of Education, The College Scorecard provides information designed to let prospective students compare information on cost, retention rates, and other critical data.
It is located at: http://collegecost.ed.gov/scorecard/
UAA Net Price Calculator
The UAA Net Price Calculator provides applicants with an estimate of the average cost and financial aid, based on information that they provide. The Net Price Calculator is provided for Undergraduate programs only at this time.
Cost of Attendance
Cost of Attendance information is provided by career (Undergraduate / Graduate) and is based on average cost for tuition and fees, books and supplies, housing and food, transportation, and personal expenses. The data is meant to be an estimate only, as each student's expenses will depend on many variables, including living arrangements.
Students whose actual expenses exceed their estimates can submit a Cost of Attendance/Budget Adjustment Form
The Shopping Sheet
Once an accepted or continuing student completes the FAFSA, UAA will notify the student of the aid he/she is eligible for. Along with the online award offer (available through UAOnline), an online Shopping Sheet is provided as a way to provide clear, concise information on cost, financial aid, retention, graduation, and average debt information per career. Designed by the U.S. Department of Education, it provides award information in a standard format to allow students to easily compare cost and aid offers for schools they are considering. The Shopping Sheet is available to students who complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid and have applied to UAA.
