When a student completes the FAFSA and indicates they want student loans, they will automatically be considered for loan funds. UTB only awards Subsidized loan funds to eligible students. If a student does not qualify for a Subsidized loan, or does not qualify for very much, an Unsubsidized loan will be offered as well. A student that did not indicate loans on the FAFSA, but has decided they want a loan, or wants additional loan funds, must complete the online Student Loan Request Form.

Students that are awarded loan funds will receive an email that outlines the steps they must follow in order to process their funds. The steps include the following:

  1. Students must accept their loan awards via UTB Online
  2. Students must complete online loan counseling
  3. Students must complete a Direct Loan Master Promissory Note, if they have not already done so
