Financial aid is available to students applying to UHC. The type of aid available depends on your student type. Aid (including grants, loans and work-study) eligibility is determined by the Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA).

Filing your FAFSA
Follow the steps below. If you need help, contact the Financial Aid office at (504) 398-2133. Additional help can be provided by the Federal Student Aid Customer Service at (800) 433-3243.
- Create FSA User ID (student and parent/guardian)
- Complete FAFSA: Whenever possible use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) to automatically move your income information from the IRS to the FAFSA. UHC’s Federal School Code is 002023.
- Review Student Aid Report: After you file, the U.S. Department of Education will notify you that your FAFSA was
processed and provide you with a Student Aid Report (SAR). Review the SAR for accuracy,
and if necessary, correct your FAFSA online.

The Office of Financial Aid dedicates time from 8:30AM-1:00 PM on Fridays to assist students with filling out the FAFSA. Students can make an appointment by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please bring all necessary information with you.
