Why uAspire?

uAspire's mission to make college an affordable and accessible option for everyone is one that I share and believe in deeply. Whatever a student's postsecondary ambitions may be, I hope that by supporting students and their families through the financial aid process we can alleviate some of the stress and leave as much room as possible for the excitement and possibilities that come with graduating high school.
