Federal Student Aid

The United States Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008  requires universities participating in student aid programs to provide all potential and enrolled students the essential information regarding academic programs, services, and financial aid procedures in order to properly inform consumers.

This Act protects a consumer’s right to learn important data regarding student services, academic progress policies, campus safety, attendance cost, and other data of each institution to make informed decisions when choosing a university.

In compliance with this requirement and for easy access, UDLAP has centralized this information on this page so prospective and enrolled students and their families can make the best decision.

For additional information regarding Universidad de las Américas Puebla, please visit our main UDLAP website, which is constantly updated and has a live chat to answer any questions regarding the university.
