Financial Aid

Getting your education funded doesn’t have to be stressful. United’s financial aid office is here to help you navigate your options and put together a financial package that works for you–while minimizing debt.

The financial aid office can help you secure three types funding:

  • Federal loans: applications accepted year-round
  • Need-based aid: awarded on a first-come, first-served basis
  • Merit-based aid: must apply by February 2 and be accepted by February 28

To apply for federal loans or need-based aid, you must complete a FAFSA. To qualify for merit-based aid, the GRE is required.

Have questions? Don’t hesitate to contact us to set up a meeting with our friendly financial aid officer.
