Undergraduate Financial Aid Application

Undergraduates: Applying for Financial Aid

Federal Financial Aid is available to US citizens and Permanent Residents.  If you have questions about your status and eligibility, please do not hesitate to contact our office

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. 

Complete the FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov

For information on completing your FAFSA early, click here or link right to the FAFSA.

You must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) annually when you wish to apply for aid. New this year: The 2018/19 FAFSA will be released three months early on October 1, 2017.  The income information will be based on 2016 (called prior prior year or PPY). 

The 2018/19 priority deadline for all students is prior to January 15, 2018.
UD will accept FAFSAs after this date.  The school code for UD is 003651.
         State aid priority deadline is March 15, 2018.

We will review your FAFSA

New students will receive an award letter detailing your total financial aid package (mailed to students December - April). If you wish to accept and/or decline the financial aid offer, you must login to BannerWeb and do so online. Please check your preferred email daily for updates. Use the Financial Aid Comparison Worksheet to compare UD's costs to other schools you are considering.

Returning undergraduate students will receive an award notification of your financial aid package through email after April 1st. If you wish to accept and/or decline the financial aid offer, you must login to BannerWeb and do so online. Please check your preferred email daily for updates. Failure to check your email regularly, could result in a delay in processing your financial aid.

If you are selected for verification, we will need additional information before an eligibility can be determined.

Accepting Federal Direct Loans (subsidized or unsubsidized)

If you accept your Federal Direct Loan(s) 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 StudentLoans.gov. Failure to do so will keep your loan from disbursing to your account, and ultimately in the cancellation of your loan.

Non-US Citizens & Non-Permanent Residents 

If you are not a US citizen or permanent resident, but you are classified as a Texas resident and therefore are eligible to pay the Texas in-state tuition rate, use the 2017-18 TASFA application (directions here). To use this application, your classification as a Texas resident must not be due to a waiver, such as an in-state scholarship or an assistantship.

If you have been granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), we encourage you to complete the FAFSA. Although DACA students are not eligible for federal student aid, you still may be eligible for state or college aid, and submitting a FAFSA can help you access those other types of aid.  To begin your FAFSA, you must enter your Social Security Number. While completing the FAFSA, you must answer the "Are you a US citizen?" question as "No, I am not a citizen or eligible noncitizen."  If you filed taxes for 2014, you may also be able to transfer your tax information using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool on the FAFSA.

Selected for Verification

The federal government selects FAFSAs to be verified by the Financial Aid Office. Our school may also select FAFSAs to be verified. During verification, a financial aid counselor must confirm that certain data elements on the FAFSA are correct before a student may receive any financial aid. In order to have payment arrangements made by the tuition due date, please turn in all requested verification items by the deadlines below:

Fall 2017

  • Priority Verification Deadline: July 1, 2017
  • Final Verification Deadline: November 15, 2017

Spring 2018

  • Priority Verification Deadline: December 15, 2017
  • Final Verification Deadline: April 15, 2018

Failure to submit documentation by the final verification deadline may result in loss of financial aid eligibility. Our office is not required to complete verification after the final deadline has passed. Students may appeal to the Director of Financial Aid for an extension to the deadline. 

Official tax return information from the IRS is required as part of the verification process. When completing your FAFSA online, you have the option of using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool. Please see page 3 of the verification worksheet for further instructions. The IRS Data Retrieval Tool is the preferred method of submitting tax information to the school because it is the quickest, easiest, and most secure way to submit your tax information.
