The UCA Office of Education Abroad does not determine student federal aid or scholarship disbursements. All students anticipating scholarships or federal student aid should meet with a Financial Aid counselor to discuss eligibility financial aid guidelines. Payment deadlines for UCA programs are independent of any funding release dates. Participants are responsible for making payments by the publicized deadlines regardless of anticipated funding.
