College Financing Plan
UAGC knows that students face a difficult task in deciding where to enroll for higher education, and that understanding the cost of college — and how to pay for it — can be daunting. Too often, students are left without a clear explanation of what the costs mean or how they compare to other colleges they are considering, and as a result, many students leave college with debt that they didn’t fully understand at the time they entered school.
UAGC is committed to ensuring that our prospective military servicemembers and student veterans are aware of the financial investment they are making from the beginning and have adopted the College Financing Plan to assist in making an educated decision on where to attend school.
The College Financing Plan can be accessed through the Net Price Calculator. It provides a mock estimated award letter designed to simplify the information that prospective students receive about costs and financial aid so they can easily compare institutions and make informed decisions about where to attend school.
