  • How do I use the APS at UAA?

    Using the APS scholarship at UAA is a great way to pursue your degree or certificate with as little debt as possible.

    So you've qualified and applied for the APS - now what?

    To receive the first award at UAA, you must also:

    • Apply for admission to UAA before the enrollment certification deadline that you plan to attend using an APS award
    • Be admitted to a qualifying degree or certificate program.
      • Collegiate Track: associate, bachelor's, and/or graduate program
      • Vocational Track: certificate program - NOTE: "Occupational Endorsement Certificates" are not eligible certificate programs.
    • Enroll in either Full-time (FT) credits or more (12+ credits for undergraduate students and 9+ credits for Graduate students) or Half-time (HT) credits (6- 11 undergraduate credits or 5-8 graduate credits).
    • Have unmet costs of attendance of $500 or more listed on the UAOnline Financial Aid Awards after considering all other non-loan aid, such as grants and other scholarships.

     If you want to receive the maximum number of awards, remember:

    1. You must file a new FAFSA every year by June 30th!
    2. You must meet continuing eligibility requirements listed in the "How do I maintainAPS continuing eligibility?" section.
    3. You have six years after high school graduation to fully use up to four years (eight semesters) of awards.
  • How do I maintain APS continuing eligibility?

    By the end of your first year:

    • earn 24 semester credits (12 for half-time students)
    • maintain a 2.5+ cumulative GPA     

    By the end of each subsequent year:

    • earn 30 semester credits (15 for half-time students
    • maintain a 2.5+ cumulative GPA     

    As a graduate student:

    • earn 18 semester credits (10+ for half-time students)
    • maintain a 2.5+ cumulative GPA

    *You must also meet UA Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements.

    For APS certification purposes, Full-time (FT) is defined as 12 credits or more for undergraduate students and 9 credits or more for Graduate students. Half-time (HT) is defined as between at least 6 and 11 credits or between 5 and 8 credits for Graduate students.

    Regardless of a student's FT or HT status, the APS is designed as an eight disbursement only format to be used within 6 years of graduation from high school.* This means that a half time student will receive a proration of their eligibility, while a full time student will receive up to 100% of their award. This is contingent on continued eligibility based on academic progress, enrollment status, other need based money student may have received in their budget, Cost of Attendance and that the student maintains the minimum required GPA as outlined below.

    • Certificate students have the additional requirement of completing the certificate in order to meet continuing eligibility requirements.
    • Graduate Students are required to maintain a 2.5 GPA for the entire enrollment period.
