* Available only to bona fide Texas resident students.

Funds through some of these programs are limited. The amount of the awards will be based on the allocations received within each program and are subject to change each academic year.

Throughout the year, scholarships and grants from sources outside the University will be posted as the information becomes available to the Financial Aid Office.

A student admitted to The University of Texas at Dallas as non-degree seeking will not be eligible for financial aid unless the student is required to enroll in pre-requisite coursework that will be applicable towards being admitted to a degree program. The maximum length of time financial aid will be issued under this type of conditional admissions will be for no more than 12 consecutive months. A student admitted with this condition will be able to borrow Federal Stafford loan at the 5th year undergraduate level and are limited to aggregate maximum undergraduate loan level.

A student enrolled at The University of Texas at Dallas for professional development or life-long learning is not eligible to receive financial aid. There are alternative long-term educational loans through several private lenders to fund this type of academic work. These loans are based on the credit worthiness of the student borrower and may or may not require a co-signer. Interest rates vary but usually are set at prime rate plus percentage points, based on the credit history of the student borrower, when the loan is approved.
