UTA offers over $500 million each year in total financial aid. Our staff strives to make the financial aid process as smooth as possible. We encourage you to browse our website and contact us with your questions and concerns. We’re here to help!


Typically, next year's Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) would be available beginning October 1st. However, due to the Federal Department of Education making major changes and improvements to the FAFSA form this year, the release of the 2024-2025 FAFSA form is delayed. While we currently do not know an exact release date, we expect the 24-25 FAFSA to be available by December 31, 2023. Review a breakdown of these changes on our FAFSA Changes webpage or visit studentaid.gov for more information. You may also follow us on social media for updates.


The Blaze Forward Program makes it even easier for eligible students to get a world-class education here at UTA!

Using a combination of grants, tuition waiver and scholarships, the Blaze Forward Program provides students meeting all eligibility requirements with funding that will cover 100% of their tuition and course fees for fall 2023 and spring 2024 semesters.

Please visit our Blaze Forward Program webpage for more details.
