How To Apply

While it is important to consider the exceptional value of continuing your education at Utica College, it is also necessary for many prospective students to consider the cost.

We firmly believe that a lack of financial resources should never be an obstacle to the pursuit of higher learning. That is why Utica College is committed to providing greater educational opportunity through financial aid in a variety of forms.

Your application

When you apply for financial aid at UC, your request is treated with fairness and confidentiality. A counselor from our Office of Student Financial Services will work closely with you to help you take full advantage of the resources available to you through:
  • Direct aid from Utica College
  • Federal and state grants
  • Scholarships
  • Student employment opportunities
  • Student loans
