2013-2014 Financial Aid Applications
If you are not eligible for federal student financial aid because of your immigration status, you may still be eligible for Texas financial aid programs. You can review the requirements and obtain an application for Texas Student financial aid at College for All Texans.
Minnie K. Patton Scholarship Open
The Minnie K. Patton Scholarship is now open. Deadline to apply is December 6, 2013. Students must have a valid FAFSA on file in the Office of Financial Aid.
The Registrar's Office, Bursar's Office and the Office of Financial Aid conduct a one hour session at each of the summer freshman orientation programs. The PowerPoint presentation being used can be found here.
Approximately 30 percent of all applications for financial aid are selected for the the verification process nationwide. If you need to provide us with additional information, we will send you a letter and/or an e-mail informing you of what is needed. See additional information about the verification process here.
The financial aid census date for the fall 2013 semester was September 11. This was 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.
2013-2014 Award Letter and Shopping Sheet Guide
If you recently received your financial aid award letter for the 2013-2014 academic year, and you want additional information, you can visit our Award Letter webpage.
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.
Financial aid funds are disbursed in lump sums. This makes budgeting a critical part of most student's lives. The federal government provides a great tool for creating a budget.
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.
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.
