Important Financial Aid Dates

The following dates are set to ensure that the student’s federal financial aid funds will be available by the university’s Fee Payment Deadline.  Students must be prepared to pay for tuition, fees, room, board and books if their expected financial aid is not ready to disburse by the published Fee Payment Deadline.

Our official means of communication is through the student’s UCA email account.  Students should check their email account regularly for notices from the Office of Student Financial Aid. The student should also check the status of their financial aid by accessing the self-service tab in myUCA.
