We want to see you flourish at Unity, which is why we’re here to help you with your financial aid process. Whether you’re an undergraduate, graduate, or certificate student, you may be able to offset your tuition costs.

Begin by applying online. Once enrolled, our Distance Education concierges will help you understand your options.

Financial aid eligibility

All degree-seeking students who are enrolled in courses are eligible for financial aid. This means:

  • Undergraduates: Must be enrolled in at least one three-credit course per five-week term.
  • Graduate students: Must be enrolled in at least one three-credit course every eight-week term.

Certificate-seeking students are also eligible for financial aid. Non-degree seeking students are not eligible for aid.

Questions? Contact a member of our financial aid team for individualized information.

How to apply for financial aid

Applying for financial aid at Unity is easy. Your first step should be filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This will tell you how much aid you can receive from federal grants, loans, or work-study. Make sure you add school code: 006858.

If you are a graduate student in financial need, a direct PLUS loan could be an option.

Other types of aid

Aside from federal aid, private loans may help offset tuition costs. Unity College is not permitted to provide counsel on which private loans to choose. Please see FastChoice for more assistance.
