Financial Aid  

Concerned about paying for your education at the University of Houston? Think of it as an investment in your future. Whether you're an undergraduate or a graduate student, a UH education will pay for itself many times over in higher earnings and expanded opportunities throughout your life.

What’s more, we offer a wide range of scholarships, fellowships and other financial aid to graduate and undergraduate students alike. With our generous financial assistance packages, some UH students find that their actual cost is lower than they had originally expected.

Costs  

Trying to determine your tuition and fee bill for future semesters? Take a look at the estimated Tuition Calculator for estimates based on hours of enrollment and major. And please contact Student Business Services for payment, fee bill calculation, refund, deferment and book loan processing.

Updates  

  • ProVerifier+: As of the 2023-24 FAFSA, verification will be completed via our new ProVerifier+ system. You will receive an introductory email from ProVerifier+ to your preferred UH email address if you have pending documents to complete. Look for the icon in AccessUH. Questions? Call ProVerifier+ at 713-748-3249. The ProVerifier+ call center is open from 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. 
  • Check your myUH To-Do List! Some students will need to complete items listed in their myUH self-service account To-Do list to determine complete eligibility and to receive their aid. If you have just begun the financial aid process and have to wait for your documents to complete processing, please be sure to choose an online payment deferment plan through the Office of Student Business Services — this will help lock in your enrollment and allow additional time for processing.
  • Didn’t get offered work-study? Click here if you’d like to be added to the 2024-25 Work-Study Wait List.
  • Disbursement: As long as you meet the enrollment and eligibility requirements, your loans will start disbursing the first week of classes, and your grants will disburse after the 13 th class day for most students. For more detailed information about aid disbursement, please visit our disbursement site.
  • Did you accept Federal Direct Loan awards? Make sure that you have completed all your additional steps, enrolled in half-time and have completed the Master Promissory Note (MPN) and Entrance Counseling at StudentAid.gov.
  • Enrollment adjustments can affect your aid! If you will not be enrolled as a full-time student, your award disbursements may be delayed to adjust any potential over-award of financial aid.
  • Need more funds to cover additional expenses like housing? There are additional loan options available like the Federal PLUS Loan or alternative/private loans you can explore.
  • Experienced income changes? If you have experienced a change in income due to job loss, medical needs, death of parent or spouse or any other catastrophic event, please come and speak with an advisor at the Welcome Center regarding a Financial Reconsideration Appeal. View our office hours  online.
  • Update your email address. Please be sure to keep your email address current in your myUH self-service account so that you receive award notifications and additional information requests in a timely fashion! Please visit our award determination and maintaining eligibility websites.
