Financial Aid

Getting Started

Congratulations on your decision to continue your education at the University of Cincinnati! We know that after you have decided on UC and your program of study, you will likely have questions regarding your educational costs and your options for covering those costs. The Student Financial Aid Office is here to answer those questions. 

We can guide you through the financial aid process and provide resources to help you pay for school. Our website contains information on financial aid eligibility, applying for aid, types of aid available, and managing your financial aid.

The first step is to apply for financial aid via the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You will also want to spend some time reviewing the financial aid timeline, aid eligibility requirements and the costs you will have as a student here at the University of Cincinnati. 

Financial Aid A-Z is our guide to every possible topic you could think of when it comes to financial aid. It's a great resource to check out, whether you have a specific question or you want to learn absolutely everything there is to know about financial aid.
