Federal Financial Aid

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (the FAFSA) opens each fall. Fill out your FAFSA when you apply to transfer to the University of Arizona to find out if you qualify for federal financial aid.

The sooner the FAFSA application is submitted, the better your chances are to qualify for free grant money and federal loan eligibility.

Transfer Financial Aid Deadlines

Non-federal aid and scholarships – including tuition awards, grants, and loans – are also available to future students. Deadlines vary; learn more at Transfer Tuition & Aid.

 

Merit Scholarship Deadlines

You may also qualify for a merit-based scholarship based on your academic performance. Each merit scholarship has its own eligibility requirements and deadlines. For instance, when you are applying for Arizona Bridge, which features a $2,000 renewable scholarship for eligible transfer students, you should be at least one year away from transferring to Arizona.

Merit-Based Scholarship Requirements

Paying Tuition

Tuition is paid through the University of Arizona Bursar’s Office. After you’re admitted and have enrolled, you can access your account balance through UAccess. Visit the Bursar's website for specific tuition dates, deadlines, the last day to receive a refund, and more.
