Federal financial aid

Completing the FAFSA

Federal student aid is the single largest source of assistance for college students. There’s just a single application, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The FAFSA should be completed in the January prior to enrollment at UA Little Rock each year. The school code for the UA Little Rock is 001101. Parent information is required for dependent students.

You will also need a Department of Education PIN in order to sign your FAFSA electronically.

Once your application has been processed, you will receive an e-mail from the federal processor and we will receive an electronic version of your Student Aid Report (SAR). At this point, we will determine if we require additional documentation. You will receive an e-mail from our office directing you to check your BOSS Account for any additional information required.
