Apply for Aid

Application Process

Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is always free. Beware of scams as you begin the application process. You never have to pay a fee to submit the FAFSA or pay anyone to help you fill it out.  You must meet the eligibility requirements to qualify for financial aid.

Application Process

1. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.gov (Not sure which FAFSA to complete? Refer to the chart on the UTA Financial Aid homepage)

2. You will receive an email notification once our office receives your FAFSA information. PLEASE NOTE: We will begin loading 2018-2019 FAFSAs in mid-November.

3. A number of financial aid applicants are selected by the U.S. Department of Education for a process called verification. Click here to learn more about the verification process.

4. Once your financial aid file is completed and your aid has been awarded, our office will send a Financial Aid Award Notification to your UTA email account outlining your financial aid award.

5. In order to receive the financial aid funds awarded to you, you must accept the awards online through your MyMav account.

To learn more about what happens once you complete the FAFSA, watch the video below.
