You may be eligible to reduce your undergraduate tuition from $510 per credit to $459 per credit as a new student at the University of Arizona Global Campus.
What is the Welcome Grant?
The Welcome Grant is intended to lower your overall cost of tuition in any undergraduate program as a new student at UAGC, regardless of your selected payment option.
Who is eligible?
You are eligible for the Welcome Grant as a new undergraduate student, a student who previously enrolled prior to July 2021 and did not complete the conditional admission period.
Note: Cannot be receiving any other institutional offers or grants excluding the Bridge Grant, the Alumni Grant, and the Referral Offer, as applicable.
What does the Welcome Grant cover?
The Welcome Grant is a tuition savings that reduces undergraduate tuition from $510 per credit to $459 per credit as long as you do not exceed 365 days of consecutive non-attendance during your program.
Can I still earn the Welcome Grant if I don’t plan on using financial aid?
Yes. You are not required to use financial aid in order to receive this grant.
What are all the things I need to do in order to qualify for this grant?
To qualify for this grant, you need to be a new undergraduate student during the offer period, a student who previously enrolled prior to July 2021 but did not complete the conditional admission period. You will receive the reduced tuition rate with no restrictions based on GPA, attendance, holds, or other factors.
When will the Welcome Grant be applied to my account?
When your courses are charged to your account each payment period, they will be charged at the reduced Welcome Grant tuition rate.
What if I fail or drop a course? What if I need to take a break between courses?
Failed courses and breaks will not impact your eligibility.
If a course is failed and requires a retake, both courses will be charged at the reduced Welcome Grant rate. You are still responsible for any balances resulting from a failed course.
You will retain your grant eligibility if you take approved breaks between courses. You will lose eligibility for the Welcome Grant if you withdraw from your program or if you exceed 365 days of consecutive non-attendance.
Certain degree programs may not be available in all states.
