Pay For College
Tuition & Financial Aid
Though UA Cossatot has the second lowest tuition in the state of Arkansas, many students do still need help paying for college. Assistance can be received from UA Cossatot Foundation scholarships, institutional scholarships, local scholarships, state scholarships and grants, and federal grants. Payment plan options are also provided for fall and spring terms.
There is a three step process that must be completed each academic year in order to receive financial aid:
- Complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) (UA Cossatot school code: 012432).
- If requested, provide any additional documentation.
- Make sure process is completed by the deadlines
Scholarships are a type of financial aid that do not need to be repaid. Scholarships are awarded on various criteria usually reflecting the requirements, values and purposes of the award donor. Scholarships can be based on merit, need, demographics, or career focus.
The UA Cossatot Scholarship application deadline is March 1 every year. However, check back here for scholarships that may become available throughout the academic year.
UA Cossatot is a veteran friendly college offering tuition waivers and support for those students who may be active, inactive, retired or a dependent of a military serviceman or woman.

Financial aid and scholarship disbursements are applied to a student’s account to cover their tuition, fees and books. Disbursements will not be made until admission documents are completely turned in and the verification process is complete.
If a student’s financial aid awards exceed their charges, they will receive a refund check for the amount.
