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 four types of funding:

  • Federal loans: applications accepted year-round
  • Need-based aid: based on your Estimated Family Contribution from the FAFSA
  • Merit-based aid (Dayton Scholarship): based on student information, a personal essay, and documentary evidence; application deadline is March 15
  • Scholarships: see here for a list of scholarships and application details.

To apply for federal loans, need-based aid, and most scholarships, you must complete a FAFSA.

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