Financial Aid

Many students choose to take out a loan to pay for all or part of the costs associated with attending the Master in Accounting program.

Loan programs available to students include:

  • Federally sponsored (Stafford) loans – for U.S. citizens only
  • Alternative private loans – for U.S. and international students

All offer low interest loans repayable upon completion of your degree.

Eligibility for loans and scholarships is determined by completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form available on line at Many funds are limited, so those students who have their FAFSA completed by March 1st each academic year receive priority processing.

Applicants must have been admitted to the MAcc program before The University of Arizona Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) will make financial aid awards. Graduate students must be enrolled at least halftime in order to receive federal loans.
