Paying for your UArts Education

<< Back to Student Financial Services

In the section below, we have outlined the direct and indirect charges associated with a UArts education. Most students receive some form of merit-based scholarship or need-based aid so few students pay these full amounts.

UArts offers a wide range of financial assistance in the form of grants, loans, or student employment — funded through federal, state, university, or private organizations.

  • Merit-based scholarships are awarded as part of the admissions process.  
  • Need-based packages are provided per the results of the FAFSA.

All students are encouraged to complete the admissions process and file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to determine the actual cost of their enrollment at UArts.
