Step 1: Submit Your Application and Transcripts

Get started

It’s important to us that a diverse group of individuals make up our student body. We want it to mirror the real world, the workplace, and the communities our students come from. That’s why we accept people from all backgrounds and walks of life.

Every applicant has the ability to bring something new and fresh to our University – and we love seeing how everyone’s talents come together to make us who we are. It’s a pretty special thing.  

Your online application can be submitted at any time, though your application is not considered complete until after we’ve received and evaluated your transcripts.

Step 2: Apply For Financial Aid

Graduate school is within reach

Education is a great investment in you and your career. Which is why we’re committed to working with you to identify ways to help make it fit your budget.

The first step to receiving financial aid (grants, loans and work-study funds) is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Once your FAFSA is processed, you’ll receive an Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which is used to figure out how much aid you can get.

After you’ve completed your admission application, you’ll then need to apply for financial aid and scholarships.

Use the Urbana University school code “003133” on your FAFSA submission to ensure we receive your scores.

Step 3: Confirm Your Acceptance

You’re in! Welcome to Urbana U

You applied. You met the requirements. You have an email acceptance letter to prove it. 

You’ll receive your graduate program acceptance letter by email. It contains plenty of helpful information, including contact information for your graduate advisor and next steps to take to sign up for your classes using our Urbana’s self-service system.

Confirm your acceptance and intent to attend Urbana by mailing in your Admission deposit. If you plan to live on campus, you will also need to provide a Housing deposit. Doing this in advance will guarantee you a spot in your graduate program.

Once we’ve received your deposit(s) your admissions counselor will be in touch to help you walk through any questions you may have plus any remaining paperwork.
