Fast Facts About UT Dallas


Tuition Due Date

If we have successfully received the results of your 2014-2015 FAFSA, and you registered as at least a half-time student, your tuition and fees for the fall semester are due on September 9. You will see a message in Orion under the "Holds" which says "The due date for you to pay the Bursar's Office has been extended to our census date".

2014-2015 FAFSA

The 2014-2015 FAFSA is available on-line at www.fafsa.gov. There are specific deadlines for various programs. If you are receiving TEXAS Grant or Texas Top 10 Percent Scholarship, the deadline set by the state is March 15. Other deadlines can be found here.


If you are attending freshman orientation this summer, welcome! The presentation to parents and other family members by the Bursar's Office, the Office of Financial Aid and the Office of the Registrar is at 9:30 on the first day of the two day program. If, after the session, you would like to review the PowerPoint presentation, you can find it here.

Census Date

The financial aid census date for the fall 2014 semester is September 9. This is our census date for the entire semester, including classes starting later in the term. (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.

Renewal Requirements

Some financial aid programs have specific requirements for renewal. If you have been awarded aTEXAS Grant, Top 10% Scholarship or the B-On-Time Loan, be aware that these Texas programs have academic progress standards that are different from our regular Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) rules. In addition, UTD's Tuition Promise program also has unique SAP requirements.

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.

Student Employment

Whether or not you have been offered funding from Federal Work-Study or Texas Work-Study, if you are looking for part-time employment while attending UT Dallas, visit the Career Center. Both on-campus and off-campus part-time jobs are available.

Post-Graduation Outcomes

Outcomes is an online tool for students and their families to make informed decisions about their academic careers. Students can view occupational outcomes, data on employment earnings and average student loan debt for graduates by degree major and school.


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

  • 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 UTD's Office of Financial Aid if you are receiving federal or state grants or loans from another school while attending UT Dallas.
  • UTD 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.
