Welcome to Financial Aid

2018-2019 Financial Aid

The 2018-2019 FAFSA is available on-line at fafsa.gov.  When UT Dallas receives the results of the FAFSA we will send you an email, letting you know we have it.  At that point you should check your To Do list in Orion to determine if we need additional documentation.

Payment due date

The Bursar’s Office charges tuition, fees, meals and housing.  Information regarding these charges can be found on their website and at EZPay.   Students who have applied for financial aid and who are registered as least a half time student for the coming term have had their payment due date extended to August 30.  More information regarding this extension can be found at www.utdallas.edu/finaid/financial-aid-payment-deadline.

Enrollment Status

For financial aid purposes, your enrollment status (e.g. half-time, three quarters-time, full-time, etc.) is determined based upon the number of financial aid-eligible semester credit hours in which you enroll, as well as your academic level.

How to Submit Documents

If you decide to send us a document as an email attachment, the preferable format is PDF. You should send the document to [email protected]. If you decide to deliver the document to our office, you should bring it to the first floor of the Student Services Building during business hours.

Census Date

The financial aid census date for the fall term is September 5.  This is the census date for the entire semester, including second session classes. (The Office of the Registrar has different census dates than does the Office of Financial Aid.) To be considered for financial aid eligibility, you must be registered for classes on our census date. To view other important academic dates, see the academic calendar.

Manage Your Money

Financial aid funds are disbursed in lump sums. This makes budgeting a critical part of most students’ lives. The federal government provides a great tool for creating a budget. Also, check out the Student Success Center’s Comet Cents program.

Important!

If you register for classes at another school at the same time you are attending UT Dallas:

  • If you are eligible for the Federal Pell Grant program, you can receive this grant at only one school at a time.
  • You must notify us if you are receiving federal or state grants or loans from another school while attending UT Dallas.
  • UT Dallas will process financial aid for your registered UT Dallas classes. We do not process financial aid for classes taken at other schools.
  • For academic requirements regarding the transferability of off-campus coursework, see your academic advisor.
