Financial Aid

Welcome to Financial Aid


Apply for FAFSA

Students may apply for all federal aid programs by completing one application, the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), which can be completed on-line at fafsa.ed.gov, or by using the new SMART PHONE APP. Students are encouraged to apply early because some types of aid have limited funding.

Fall 2020


Apply for Scholarships

Students that are currently classified as pre-freshmen entering UAM as Freshmen, must submit a new admissions application to change their status from pre-freshmen to freshmen.

UAM Scholarship Application

The UAM Scholarship Application will match you with Institutional and Private Foundation Scholarships that you qualify for after completing the general scholarship application. Some private scholarships require an additional application. You will be given the option to submit an additional application for such scholarships upon completion of the general application. To qualify for institutional scholarships you must submit an admissions application, High School Transcript, and qualifying ACT/SAT Scores to the university.

Please contact finaid@uamont.edu for additional information.

Apply for State Aid

YOUniversal Scholarship Application

Arkansas State Aid - completion of the Arkansas YOUniversal Scholarship Application is required. The Arkansas Department of Higher Education has information available for students and parents (www.ADHE.edu).  Click the START button to begin registering, or log in if you are a returning user. The application deadline is June 1st for most programs; however, it is February 1st for the Governor's Scholarships. Eligibility for Arkansas state financial aid programs is disclosed by ADHE via email to the student. 

The awards will only appear on UAM financial aid notification letters generated after the school has been notified; however, all financial aid awards can be viewed on WeevilNet in the Student Services Center. It is a student's responsibility to keep his or her ADHE profile updated with the school you plan to attend.

Check WeevilNet & UAM Student Email Regularly

Students are strongly encouraged to routinely check their WeevilNet and UAM student email throughout the process. WeevilNet To-Do checklists are posted by various departments to remind students about outstanding documents needed.
