UTA encourages students to borrow only the loan money they need to complete their education in order to avoid building up a significant amount of student loan debt over time. UTA also offers several resources to help students manage their money.
Federal loan servicers also offer many different repayment plan options for student loan borrowers who accumulate debt while attending school.
Beware of student loan forgiveness scams! There’s nothing a debt relief company can do for you that you can’t do yourself for free through the U.S. Department of Education.

If you borrowed student loans from UTA or any other school and now are preparing to graduate or drop below half-time enrollment status, then there are a few steps you need to take to get started with the loan repayment process:
Log on to StudentAid.gov and complete exit counseling.
Log on to StudentAid.gov using your FSA ID and password to:
Review the federal student loans you have borrowed.
Contact your loan servicer regarding payment arrangements, deferment, or forbearance options.
Deferment: A period where you postpone making payments on your loan. Interest doesn't accrue on subsidized federal loans. If you are continuing in school at least half-time, you can apply for a deferment.
If you are having trouble keeping up with your loan payments, your loan servicer may be able to help! Watch the video to learn more.
UTA also offers resources on-campus to help you manage your money. The Student Money Management Center is located on the second floor of the University Administration Building and assists students with all of their financial needs. They offer budgeting tools, scholarship searches, and access to credit counseling resources.
You can also set up a one-on-one consultation with a representative to help you budget and save your money. Learn more by visiting their website and contacting them today!
