Funding Your Education at UA Little Rock

Your first step in the Financial Aid process is to complete and submit your FAFSA. You must complete and submit a FAFSA each year that you would like to be considered for Financial Aid and institutional (university) scholarships. Once you’ve done that, you’re on your way to receiving financial aid!
