Financial Aid Process

Our commitment is to help you navigate and understand the financial aid process and identify financial tools to help make a college education affordable. Paying for college is a partnership, and this partnership includes your family, the government, and the University of Bridgeport.

Review and Return your award letter to the Financial Aid Office if you are rejecting or adjusting your award.

If you are a NEW STUDENT please complete the Direct Loan Entrance Counseling * and Master Promissory Note*

If you need further financial assistance you can apply for a Federal Direct Graduate PLUS *.

Payment Plans
Monthly payment plans are available.  Students and their families can make payments from their bank account or by credit card through the myUB portal. The interest-free payment plan option can help spread all or part of student’s tuition, room & board, and fees over several equal monthly payments.  Payment plan enrollment can be completed via the UB Portal for a fee of $50 each semester.

Work Study
If interested in Work-Study, you can view and apply for positions online at the University of Bridgeport Career Services.

Private Loans
Last option to apply for financial assistance is to apply for a Private Loan. * We recommend you look at several options as interest and fees vary with each lender. All students who borrow must complete a Private Education Loan Applicant Self-Certification Form (PDF) and submit this form to the lender in order for the alternative loan to be complete and disburse. In order to complete this form, you will need to reference our Tuition and Fees brochure.
