Don’t wait, complete your FAFSA ASAP: 2018-19 FAFSA is now OPEN!

We all know college is expensive. The US Department of Education, the State of Arkansas, and UAFS can make college much more affordable. But to qualify for financial aid, you have to complete your FAFSA! In order to maximize your award it’s important to complete your FAFSA early.


The FAFSA for the 2018-2019 Academic Year is now open. Go to to get started!


If you have questions or need assistance completing your FAFSA the UAFS Financial Aid Office is holding FAFSA workshops now. Check out the schedule and items you need to complete your FAFSA here.


Why complete the FAFSA early?

  • Complete your FAFSA and satisfy any outstanding requirements by March 1, 2018 and your 2018-2019 financial aid will be packaged with priority!
  • You have a better chance at receiving the maximum amount of federal aid you are eligible for and more state aid and scholarships if you complete your FAFSA early. The Arkansas Challenge Scholarship requires a complete FAFSA.
  • Less stress! Get your FAFSA done now and you won’t have to stress about financial aid deadlines, having funds to buy books, or late fees next year. Plus, getting it off your plate gives you more time to study, play ultimate Frisbee, or root on the Lions at Homecoming.
