Free Tuition for Arizona Native Americans

With the Arizona Native Scholars Grant, undergraduates from the state's 22 federally recognized Native American tribes do not pay tuition or mandatory fees at the University of Arizona Tucson campus. More details about the grant, how to apply, and other programs that serve Indigenous students are available on the Scholarships and Financial Aid website.

Scholarships for Incoming Transfer Students

Transfer students make up approximately 20% of the incoming class each year.
