Note: The Texas state financial aid priority deadline is March 15 for all state programs. Please see College for All Texans for additional details regarding applying and eligibility criteria.

To meet a priority deadline, you must:

  • Have been admitted to or be currently enrolled in a degree-seeking program at the University.
  • Have submitted a valid FAFSA or TASFA (if you are not eligible for federal aid) with the results received by UT Dallas. To ensure timely delivery, you should submit your application at least two weeks before the priority deadline. This allows time for you to receive and respond to a request for additional information.
  • Supply additional documentation required, if any, for the completion of your application. You should log in to Orion to check for any outstanding financial aid documents. If you are a new UT Dallas student, you will be sent a letter notifying you of any missing financial aid documents; all reminders after this letter will be sent to your UT Dallas email address. You should regularly check your “To Do List” through Orion for any outstanding documents.


After the Priority Deadline

You may still complete a FAFSA or TASFA if you do not meet the priority deadline. However, FAFSA and TASFA applications must be submitted at least three weeks before the end of the term in which you are enrolled to allow time for processing.

Students who do not meet the priority deadlines indicated above risk not being considered for financial aid programs that are subject to annual appropriations. You will still be considered for the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Direct Stafford Loan and Federal Direct PLUS Loan programs.
