Grants are awards that do not have to be repaid. The most common grant awarded to UA students is the Federal Pell Grant, a need based grant awarded usually only to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's or a professional degree. All financial aid awards are divided into two equal disbursements paid to the student, half in the fall term and half in the spring term, unless otherwise noted.
