Many sources of student financial aid exist at The University of Texas at Arlington. Any interested student should apply for assistance each year, as eligibility can vary from one year to the next. Financial aid is generally limited to U.S. citizens or those in this country on other than a temporary visa. A minimum of half-time enrollment with the intent of obtaining a degree or certificate and the maintenance of satisfactory scholastic progress are required to participate in most aid programs. Students subject to selective service registration will be required to file a statement that the student has registered or is exempt from selective service registration to be eligible for federal financial aid. In addition, effective Jan. 1, 1998, the selective service requirement is also applicable to students applying for financial assistance funded by State revenue.
Unless otherwise noted in this section of the Catalog, financial aid is available through the Financial Aid Office in Room 252, Davis Hall, 817-272-3561. Information is also available on the financial aid web site: http://wweb.uta.edu/ses/fao/

These funds have been contributed by individual donors, U.T. Arlington alumni, corporations, government agencies and others to recognize and reward academic excellence.

A self-directed national computer search service, College Fund Finder, developed by the College Board, is available to students in the Financial Aid Office.
