Student Financial Aid
The mission of the Office of Student Financial Aid (SFA) is to provide financial aid to students who would be unable to attend the University without such assistance. Additionally, our mission is to also support the success of colleges and students in their commitment to academic excellence through outstanding service. We strive to provide a student-oriented approach in the administration of financial aid programs by being responsive to the needs of students, their families, and other constituents. These pages are dedicated to helping prospective and currently enrolled University of Kentucky students apply for and secure financial assistance to help meet the cost of attending UK.
