Cost & Aid


The University of Arizona at Sierra Vista is dedicated to providing options to students to offset the cost of college.

Filling out the FAFSA is a good place to start. It is free and quick, and it gives you access to the largest source of financial aid to pay for college.

The Department of Education is the largest provider of student financial aid in the nation, offering more than $150 billion each year in financial aid money to help millions of students pay for higher education. Federal student aid includes:

  • Grants - financial aid that does not have to be repaid (unless, for example, you withdraw from school and owe a refund)
  • Loans - borrowed money for college or career school; you must repay your loans, with interest
  • Work-Study - a work program through which you earn money to help you pay for school

Transfer students who have not completed an associate's degree may be required to submit an official high school or GED transcript listing a graduation date in order to receive federal student aid.


Merit-based student scholarships are available, each with their own eligibility requirements and deadlines. For transfer students, some of these include, Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship Award, Transfer Tuition Scholarship, UA Bridge and All-Arizona Academic Team Tuition Award. Find out more at our Transfer Student Cost & Aid page.

Scholarship Universe is a comprehensive University of Arizona scholarship matching tool that allows you to be matched with thousands of UA and/or non-UA scholarship opportunities.
