Meet Kira Manuel on “The College Tour”Before she was in high school, Kira Manuel had actually never been to a college campus before. The first in her family to go to a four-year university, Manuel didn’t really know much about college – except that it was expensive.

Figuring out how to pay for college can be overwhelming, but UNI is there to help. Financial aid is easier to access than most people think. At UNI, nine out of 10 students actually receive some kind of financial aid, and UNI has a great system for working with students to help figure it all out. Although everyone's experience with financial aid and scholarships looks different, the office of financial aid and scholarships is full of super knowledgeable people who love to help students and truly want everyone to succeed. With the stress of figuring out how to pay for college behind her, Manuel can't wait to graduate knowing that her degree is completely paid for and she is set up to succeed.
