A Rewarding Investment
NOTE: UC students are currently completing spring coursework online. With consideration for the health and safety of the extended UC community, Student Financial Aid and One Stop (as well as other UC offices) have also moved to virtual operations. Walk-in service is currently not available.
We thank you for your patience as staff continue to work to meet the needs of students and families while attending to the recommendations and requirements set forth by federal, state, and local authorities.
A college education is one of the most important investments you will ever make — an investment in yourself and your future. You are sure to find that college will be one of the most personally rewarding and demanding challenges you will ever take on, and like most students and parents, you have some concerns about paying for your education.
We believe that, regardless of your income, you have the potential to afford the quality education that the University of Cincinnati provides. We are committed to making your college education as affordable as we can. In fact, nearly all students are eligible for some form of financial assistance.
Financial aid will likely not meet all of your educational costs. But use of financial aid can reduce out-of-pocket expenses you (or your family) may assume while in college.
Key to receiving aid is applying and doing so in a timely manner. Because some aid programs are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis, an early application receives priority consideration for limited funding sources. Complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon after October 1 of each year as possible to apply for aid for the upcoming academic year.
This Website provides detailed information to help you seek out answers to questions, check your status, understand issues surrounding offered aid, and plan for your college costs.
Your future is exciting! The Student Financial Aid Office is excited to be part of it and help you achieve your educational goals.
