FLORENCE, AL - The University of North Alabama is committed to providing a quality education at an affordable cost. In keeping with that commitment, officials at UNA have announced the following new and expanded scholarship opportunities:
- The New Start Scholarship has been expanded to include on-campus graduate programs as well as certificates and micro-credentials. New students enrolled in any bachelor's degree program, any graduate program (online or on-campus), certificate, or micro- credential will automatically qualify for the New Start Scholarship. With it, students enrolled in at least two courses will receive their first course free. Plus, for a limited time, they will pay no application fee.
- The UNA Alumni Scholarship provides an automatic 15 percent tuition scholarship to UNA alumni who enroll in any graduate program (online or on-campus), certificate, or micro-credential. This scholarship will be applied to newly admitted students beginning in Summer 2021.
- The Military Heroes Scholarship provides an automatic 25 percent tuition scholarship to any active duty, veteran, or current member of the National Guard or Reserves who enrolls in an online bachelor's degree program, any graduate program (online or on- campus), certificate, or micro-credential. This scholarship will be applied beginning Fall 2021 to all students who qualify.
"We have launched una.edu/affordable as a centralized hub where students can learn about the various financial resources available to assist them in paying for their education," said Dr. Amber Paulk, Vice Provost for Academic Affairs and Dean of Graduate and Online Education. "Cost is one of the biggest barriers to students pursuing their higher education. By keeping costs low and providing robust scholarship opportunities, UNA is increasing students' access to quality educational opportunities."
