There are many federal, state and private resources available to help fund your education at any one of our 10 campuses.

Financial aid offices at each campus have professional staff members to administer these programs and advise students and families regarding the financial aid and scholarship opportunities available to them throughout the UH System.

Begin by filling out the U.S. Department of Education’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Federal Financial Aid

The Federal government has many types of grants, scholarships, work study and loan programs available to those who qualify.

Requirements

All UH campuses use the U.S. Department of Education’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine eligibility for federal and most campus-based financial aid programs.

Male citizens of the U.S. and male immigrant aliens 18 through 25 years old must be registered with the U.S. Selective Service System to be eligible for federal student loans and grants. Men can register at any post office, or register on–line at www.sss.gov/regist.htm

These programs are awarded exclusively by the financial aid office at the individual UH campuses. Check with the financial aid office where you plan to attend for more information on availability of funds, eligibility, deadlines and required forms.
