The UHD Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid  is open to serve you in person and virtually. All financial aid services, including document intake, are available electronically to you (email, phone, and document upload via your student portal) between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm. To expedite the processing of your financial aid application, completed checklist items should be uploaded via your student portal. The document upload feature via your student portal is available 24 hours a day. For more information on how to upload your checklist items, visit the Document Upload Instructions web page.
The UHD Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid offers a variety of financial aid programs to undergraduate and graduate students. The programs include scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study, which may be awarded in various combinations and amounts to meet individual student needs. Because funds are limited in many programs, it is important to begin the application process early and complete the necessary applications properly and on time. The priority deadline at UHD for the 2024-2025 FAFSA is May 1 and March 15 for the 2024-2025 TASFA application.
Most federal and state aid is awarded on the basis of proven financial need rather than academic achievement. Most scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic achievement, talents, and special skills rather than proven financial need.
