The University of Texas at Arlington: Resources When You Need Them
MyMav, our student portal, provides access 24/7 for students to register, pay for classes and much more.
As of July 1, 2011, changes in the policy regarding withdrawing from courses may affect all students in modular programs. Second degree students are limited to undergraduate aggregate loan limits, and some of these students do not have sufficient loan eligibility to fund the entire second degree program.
Federal Financial Aid
**Students are only allowed to receive financial aid from one institution at one time. If you are currently enrolled at another university and are receiving financial aid, you will not be allowed to receive financial aid at The University of Texas at Arlington and should decline any aid if offered. If you receive financial aid while attending UTA and decide to simultaneously enroll at another institution, you will not be allowed to receive financial aid there. If you have received aid at two institutions for the same enrollment period, you will be required to repay the financial aid received at one of those institutions. For any questions regarding this policy, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 817-272-3561.
Financial Aid is available for many UTA Accelerated Online programs. Students must meet certain general eligibility criteria to apply for most need-based financial aid:
- must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident (for all federal programs)
- must be working toward a degree or certification at UTA
- must have a high school diploma or its equivalent
- must be enrolled at least half time at UTA (six undergraduate hours for undergraduate students, five graduate hours for graduate students)
- must meet the published Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements
- must resolve any drug conviction issues
To apply awarded financial aid to your student account, you must be registered for at least six undergraduate hours or five graduate hours in a given term. If you are taking more than one course per start date, this requirement should be easily met. However, if you are only taking one course at a time, you must register for future courses in that term to qualify. Your financial aid will credit to your student account once you meet the half time enrollment requirement.
The Summer term has two start dates: One in May and one in July. If you register for one three-credit hour course for May and another three-credit hour course in July, you will meet the minimum credit hour requirements. If you start the program in July, you will have to register for two courses in July to meet the credit hour requirements. If you cannot take two courses in the last start date of a term, you can still pay for your courses as normal. Your financial aid award will begin with the next term within the award year. Financial aid may be used to pay the prior term charges if there is sufficient aid to cover all current charges first within the same award year. The financial aid year begins with summer and includes the following fall and spring. Financial aid may not normally be used to pay for an outstanding balance from a prior award year.
Applying for Financial Aid
Financial aid is available to those students who qualify. To apply, please follow these instructions:
- Go to the Federal Student Aid FAFSA site. Choose "Fill Out Your FAFSA" in column two on the web page. UTA's school code is 003656.
- Complete the FAFSA and sign it electronically with your PIN.
UTA will process signed FAFSAs within five business days. Students will receive either a letter notifying them that they have been selected for verification and additional documents are needed or an Award Notification email sent to their UTA email address with instructions to log into the Student Center of the individual MyMav account to view and accept the awards the student wishes to receive.
Students must accept the awards offered to them prior to the tuition deadline. If a student chooses to decline awards or does not have sufficient financial aid to pay the full tuition and fee costs, the student must pay the remaining charges out of pocket. Students who fail to accept their awards letter and/or have not paid at least half of the tuition will be dropped from class.
Students can visit the UTA FAO Portal for questions.
Note: Academic Partnerships students are exempt from university scholarships and grant funds.
