Undergraduate financial aid

Funding your education

Financial aid helps fill the gap between the cost of attending UA Little Rock and the amount that a student and their family are able to contribute. To be considered for financial aid awarded through the UA Little Rock Office of Financial Aid, students must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Be enrolled in a degree or aid-eligible certificate program
  • Be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident
  • Make satisfactory academic progress toward completion of the academic program
  • Registered for Selective Service (if applicable)
  • May not be in default on a loan previously received for college expenses nor owe a refund on a scholarship, grant, or loan from a previous enrollment period.

Whenever possible, aid will be offered to meet the full amount of the student’s eligibility. All students who meet the February 1 financial aid application priority deadline (including any requested supporting documentation) will receive maximum consideration of campus-based aid programs.
