How Do We Determine Financial Aid Opportunities for Our Students?

Our financial services team evaluates every admitted student on an individual basis to determine the best financial package we can offer our students. We take the time to consider individual circumstances and how UP can make your college education affordable. 

We encourage all eligible students to complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). This is the Federal Application for financial assistance. Here at UP, we use the information provided on the FAFSA to consider a student for additional financial assistance.
