One of the most important tasks to complete when beginning your search for funding is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This application is the starting point for many other forms of financial aid, including ETV, the Arizona Tuition Waiver, and many scholarships. When completing your FAFSA, make sure to list the University of Arizona's school code when asked what schools you are considering: 001083. This application is availble to you on October 1 each year and should be completed absolutely no later than March 1 each year - the earlier you are able to complete this application, the better!
WARNING: Some parts of the FAFSA can be confusing - if you need help completing this application, or are unsure of how to answer a question, reach out to your high school counselor, the UA Financial Aid office, or to our team for guidance! For more information about working through the requirements for verification, for those FAFSAs that are flagged, see this helpful article!
