If you wish to be considered for financial aid, we recommend you complete the application process and file the FAFSA by the following dates.

  • For fall 2024 entry, we recommend you file the FAFSA by March 15, 2024.

  • For spring 2025 entry, we recommend you file the FAFSA by Nov. 1, 2024.

We encourage students to complete the FAFSA by March 15, if possible.
Many students and families have encountered technical challenges while trying to complete the FAFSA this year. If this is the case for you, continue to utilize the FAFSA support resources until your issue is resolved. UArts will ensure that all admitted students who file the FAFSA are eligible for the same institutional funding to support your costs.
