Apply for Aid: Current Undergraduate

This page provides step-by-step instructions for current undergraduate students interested in applying for financial aid.

  1. Complete Your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

    To apply for federal student aid, you need to complete the FAFSA.

    The 2023-2024 FAFSA is available on October 1, 2022! Institutional funding is limited so it is recommended that you fill out your FAFSA by March 1, 2023

    Completing and submitting the FAFSA is free and quick, and it gives you access to the largest source of financial aid to pay for college.

    Be sure to include Arizona's school code (001083) when you submit your FAFSA to avoid delays in the processing of your aid. Review the short video below for more information about the FAFSA.

    Remember, you need to complete a FAFSA each year!

  2. Apply for Scholarships

    Scholarship Universe (SU) is our scholarship-matching tool for admitted University of Arizona students. SU connects Wildcats to millions of dollars in internal and external scholarships.
