  • Employer Sponsorship Assistance Programs: Employers may submit vouchers or checks. Vouchers should be sent to the Business Office; checks should be mailed to Student Financial Services.
  • GI Dependent Benefits: The office of Veteran Affairs will issue the student and UNA a certificate of eligibility once the student's application has been approved.

UNA offers an interest-free monthly payment option through Tuition Management Systems (TMS).

I have been awarded a student loan, but am a first-time freshman with a 30 day delayed disbursement. How will this affect my payment due?

The Business Office is aware of the 30-day delay required for the first loan disbursement of first-time freshmen. Payment of your account will be deferred up to the amount of the loan disbursement during the 30-day delay.

The difference between the total amount owed and the expected loan disbursement must be paid by the payment due date to avoid cancellation of your schedule.

Please note that in order to defer your payment as stated above, you must complete all required steps to accept and obtain your financial aid by the payment due date. Failure to comply may result in your schedule being voided.
