How to Accept Financial Aid

You may view your financial aid awards using UA Little Rock’s BOSS system. Several financial aid programs require you to officially accept the offer of assistance before the award can be finalized. UA Little Rock has simplified this process by allowing you to accept awards online. Please read this information carefully and follow the instructions for viewing and accepting your financial aid awards. Note that only some types of financial aid awards require online acceptance. For example, Pell Grants and SEOG (Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant) awards do not require an official acceptance.
