The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships offers a wide variety of scholarships, grants, work, and loan programs to assist with funding the college education of students and families of all income levels. More than 63% of UTA students receive some type of financial assistance. We look forward to assisting you with the financial aid process.

Scholarship opportunities from sources outside of UT Arlington are located in the Private Scholarships page.


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 UT Arlington.  Log into to apply.  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.

Requirements and Deadlines

To be considered for maximum grant funding, students must be admitted to UT Arlington and the completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and any additional required documents must be received in the Financial Aid Office by the dates below. Because additional documents may be required (see Verification), students should complete and submit the FAFSA at least two weeks prior to the deadline.

Financial aid awards cannot be made until all required documents have been received. Due to the uncertainty of available funding through federal and state grant programs, grant award amounts may be reduced from previous years. The most advantageous grant awards will be made to eligible students who have been admitted to UT Arlington and have submitted all required financial aid paperwork by April 1, 2016.

  • Fall/Spring 2016-2017 Grant Priority Deadline: April 1, 2016
