If you need financial aid, you are encouraged to apply between January and March preceding the academic year (which begins July 1) in which you plan to attend. Prior acceptance into a program is not a requirement to apply for financial aid. Students who plan to apply for financial aid should contact:
UAMS Student Financial Services Awards Division

The resources available to the College in any year determine how many students can be assisted and to what extent. Funds to assist students are provided by state and federal agencies, philanthropic organizations, alumni, and other individuals. Current and prospective students who plan to apply for financial aid should request the UAMS Consumer Information Guide which outlines the financial aid process, defines eligibility requirements, and give a complete description of the various financial aid programs available.
The UAMS Student Financial Services Office is located in the Administration West Building, Room 1.120. The hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. It is not necessary to make an appointment to visit with the staff in the Awards.
