Fast Facts About UT Dallas

Students who have submitted a FAFSA and are registered at least half-time have a payment due date of September 8.

How to Submit Documents

Our Contact Us page has our mailing address, email address and our fax number.   We prefer that you send any document via the U.S. Mail.  If you decide to send the document as an email attachment we prefer it be in PDF format.  If you decide to deliver the document to our office you should bring it to the first floor of the Student Services Building during business hours.

Summer 2015 Financial Aid

UT Dallas does not automatically award financial aid to students for the summer term.  We offer summer financial aid to students who complete the on-line request available on our forms page at www.utdallas.edu/student/finaid/forms

2015-2016 FAFSA

The 2015-2016 FAFSA is available on-line at www.fafsa.gov.

FAFSA Change

Recently the U.S. Department of Education implemented the FSA ID, a modernized log-in process that improves the security and customer experience for their student- and borrower-based websites, including FAFSA on the Web, NSLDS Student Access, StudentLoans.gov, StudentAid.gov, and the TEACH Grant website. The new FSA ID, which is comprised of a user-selected username and password, replaces the Federal Student Aid PIN as the process by which students, parents, and borrowers authenticate their identity to access their federal student aid information.

Changing your PIN to a user name and password should take less than 7 minutes. Only the owner of the FSA ID should create his or her account.   This link takes you to a step by step guide for making the change.

Census Date

The financial aid census date for the Fall 2015 term is Wednesday 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 have been 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.
