Dates To Know

 2014 summer request form deadline:

June 6, 2014.

Financial Aid PAYMENT Deadlines:

To ensure eligible financial aid awards will be ready before registration payment deadline(s), students are encouraged to provide all documents requested by the UTB Financial Aid Office no later than:

 Fall semester deadline:  June 1
 Spring semester deadline:  November 1
 Summer sessions deadline:  April 1


Students completing the financial aid application and verification process after these deadlines may receive financial aid consideration during the semester, but must be prepared to pay for classes with personal funds by the registration payment deadline(s). Limited payment alternatives, including emergency loans and installment plans, are available through the Accounting and Finance Office.

Financial Aid PRIORITY Deadlines:

 Fall semester deadline:  March 1
 Institutional Scholarship deadline:  March 1
 Spring semester deadline:  October 1
 Summer sessions deadline:  March 17


Students are encouraged to complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid as early as January 1st each calendar year.

State Aid Deadlines:  

 Priority deadline for Initial consideration:   March 15*
 Final deadline for Renewal consideration:  July 1*

Since UTB does not receive sufficient funding to consider all eligible state aid applicants, students are strongly encouraged to make alternate payment arrangements for registration costs without expectation of receiving award(s). If funds are available, students filing on or before the priority deadline will automatically receive consideration.

Students must have their program of study declared by no later than June 1st to receive consideration for state grants during an academic year. Students who make changes to their program of study after this date may lose eligibility to future state funds.

*All students interested in consideration for state financial aid (i.e. TEXAS Grant, Top 10 Percent Scholarship, etc.) at UTB must have a processed financial aid application on file no later than March 15 and complete the verification process no later than July 1.
