Q:

How do I apply for financial aid?

Many sources of student financial aid exist at The University of Texas at Arlington. Any interested student should apply for assistance each year, as eligibility can vary from one year to the next. Financial aid is generally limited to U.S. citizens or those in this country on other than a temporary visa. A minimum of half-time enrollment with the intent of obtaining a degree or certificate and the maintenance of satisfactory scholastic progress are required to participate in most aid programs. Details may be obtained from the Financial Aid Office.
