Types of Financial Aid Programs

In order to be considered for federal student aid you must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

If you are eligible to pay in-state tuition due to Senate Bill 1528, and wish to be considered for certain types of state financial aid, you must complete a Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) and submit it directly to the UT Dallas Office of Financial Aid.

Availability of each program is based on program appropriations each fiscal year.

Below are the basic criteria for qualifying for the various types of assistance. Additional program requirements may apply.

For access to scholarship information, see our Scholarships page.

The addition of any scholarship, grant, exemption, waiver, or outside funding toward your educational expenses may result in a reduction of aid. If you have received any of the aforementioned types of aid that are not represented on your award letter, please contact the Office of Financial Aid as soon as possible.
