Scholarships for Aviation Students

Aviation students should be advised that flight costs are not included in tuition or fees. They are determined on an hourly basis for aircraft and flight instruction, and are in addition to tuition, fees and any other incidental expenses that are normally charged for enrollment. Flight costs can cost about $55,000 during a four-year undergraduate program.

At UCM, we recognize the importance of keeping your education affordable. There are a number of campus-wide scholarships, as well as awards and scholarships for students in the Department of Aviation. Flight costs can be intimidating, but there are opportunities to help finance your education.
