Financial

Financial Aid and Scholarships

UVU offers a comprehensive and varied program of financial assistance, including grants, loans, work study programs and scholarships. There are three types of financial aid:

Gift Aid: These programs are funded by government and private monies. They do not have to be repaid and are awarded upon a wide range of eligibility requirements. Gift aid includes scholarships and grants.

Work Study Programs: These programs are funded by state and federal monies and include an hourly wage, which comes in part from the employer and in part from the program. These programs do not need to be repaid.

Loans: All loans have to be repaid, though student loans often have interest rates below standard loan rates. Some are repayable immediately, while others defer monthly payments until after graduation. Some student loans can be awarded even if the calculated financial need deems the student ineligible for other forms of aid.

Students may go to BA 106 to meet with a financial aid counselor during regular business hours. Appointments are available on a first-come, firstserved basis.
