1. Apply for Financial Aid

To apply for financial aid, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).For official fling deadlines, visit www.fafsa.ed.gov

2. Complete Your Aid Package

The signed award letter should be returned only if you are rejecting any of the aid on your award letter. Please keep in mind if you are accepting all the aid we do not need the award letter back.

3. Complete and Return your “Confirmation of Undergraduate Admissions Acceptance” form

Complete your “Confirmation of Undergraduate Admissions Acceptance” form that came in your acceptance packet and mail to the Admissions Office with your $200 tuition deposit. The deadline for submission of this form is May 1st.

4. Complete the Housing License and Meal Contract form

If you wish to live on campus, submit your $200 housing deposit and complete the Housing License and Meal Contract forms online, through the MyUB Portal.

5. Complete and Return the Health History Form
