Changes to the FAFSA!
Please be aware of the new changes to the 2017-18-Free Application for Financial Student Aid (FAFSA) for the upcoming academic year.
Welcome to Student Financial Services!
In order to better serve you, our office is divided into two divisions: Financial Aid Office and Bursar’s Office. The role of the Financial Aid Office is to actively assist students in seeking and securing financial resources by providing financial information and services in a professional and individualized manner. The role of the Bursar’s Office is to coordinate the disbursement of awarded financial aid, process tuition payments, and manage UAMS campus based loans.
Paying for your UAMS education can be challenging, but we are here to assist you. State and federal laws mandate many of our policies and procedures, but we will do our best to provide you with optimum funding based on those regulations. Occasionally, the answers we provide to your questions are not what you would like to hear, but we can assure you that no questions will go unanswered. We are here to look out for your interests at every point in the process.
Some good advice: START EARLY! Applying for aid can take 8 to 12 weeks from start to finish. Please complete all application procedures carefully and return the needed documents and information to us as soon as possible to meet priority deadlines. This will ensure funds are available by the college’s tuition due date.
I am glad you are choosing UAMS for your educational experience. My staff and I are eager to help you succeed. I encourage you to take a few minutes to browse our site. Please check back often for updates or changes.
