Apply for Graduate Financial Aid

Graduates: Applying for Financial Aid

To be eligible for federal financial aid, you must be either a US citizen or permanent resident.  You cannot be in default on any student loans or have borrowed the aggregate (lifetime) maximum in the federal student loan program ($138,500 between subsidized and unsubsidized loans, including both undergraduate- and graduate-level loans).  

Please wait until you have been admitted to the University of Dallas to submit your financial aid documentation.  You cannot be awarded until you are admitted to a degree-seeking program.  University of Dallas does not require the CSS Profile. 

Per federal regulations, the Federal Direct Subsidized loan can no longer be issued to graduate students after July 1st, 2012.

Complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) at the new website: https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa.

You must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) annually when you wish to apply for aid. 

The 2020/21 FAFSA opened on October 1, 2019.  For the 2020/21 FAFSA income information will be based on 2018 (called prior prior year or PPY). 

The school code for UD is 003651.

We will review all submitted information.

New and returning graduate students will receive a financial aid notification through email to their UD email address.  

All students will view, accept, and/or decline financial aid on BannerWeb

Accepting the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan

If you accept your Federal Direct Loan and you are a new borrower at UD, you will be required to complete a Federal Direct Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN) and Direct Loan Entrance Counseling at studentaid.gov.  Failure to do so will keep your loan from disbursing to your account, and ultimately in the cancellation of your loan.  

Review the following statements and contact us with any questions

Regarding enrollment:
I must be enrolled in a degree-seeking program in order to receive financial aid.
I am not eligible for financial aid if I am enrolled less than half-time (4.5 credits), or enrolled in classes that do not count towards my degree.
Dropping hours during the refund period or withdrawing from the University will affect my financial aid.
Receiving aid from other sources may require an adjustment to my financial aid award package.
Not meeting the satisfactory academic progress standards as defined by the University will affect my financial aid.

Regarding withdrawal:
If I withdraw from all classes, it is my responsibility to contact the Financial Aid Office.
If a tendency to withdraw occurs, the Office of Financial Aid reserves the right to modify my financial aid, and loans may be awarded only up to tuition.
Students receiving federal, state, and/or institutional financial aid that withdraw from the University through the 60% period of the semester are subject to a return of funds calculation, which may cause me to owe money to the University.
A copy of the Return of Funds Policy is available from the Office of Financial Aid. It is my responsibility to read through the policy.
