Spring 2017 financial aid

It is not too late to receive financial aid for the spring 2017 semester. Log on to and add UTA's school code (003656) to your 2016-2017 FAFSA to begin the process.

The winter intersession is part of the spring 2017 semester. Although spring aid cannot disburse until Jan. 7, you will be held in your winter courses as long as you have enough financial aid to cover your spring charges. Contact us or the Office of Student Accounts if you have questions!

Early fafsa

The 2017-2018 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is now available for students who wish to apply for financial aid for the summer 2017, fall 2017, and spring 2018 semesters at The University of Texas at Arlington. The chart below will help you to determine which FAFSA you should complete. For these two award years, you will use the same federal income tax information.
