Loss of Income

On your Free Application for Federal Student Financial Aid (FAFSA), you indicated that you or someone in your household is a dislocated worker. In general, a person may be considered a dislocated worker if he or she:

  • is receiving unemployment benefits due to being laid off or losing a job and is unlikely to return to a previous occupation;
  • has been laid off or received a lay-off notice from a job;
  • was self-employed but is now unemployed due to economic conditions or natural disaster; or
  • is a displaced homemaker. A displaced homemaker is generally a person who previously provided unpaid services to the family (for example: a stay-at-home mom or dad), is no longer supported by the husband or wife, is unemployed or underemployed, and is having trouble finding or upgrading employment.

If you would like to explore your options for potentially reducing your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), download and complete the Loss of Income form for the appropriate aid year along with all required documentation and submit it to our office at your earliest convenience.  We cannot process this request unless all documentation is received. We will begin to process submitted requests for fall starting in May.

If you checked yes to dislocated worker in error, please correct your FAFSA by indicating there are no dislocated workers in your household. Once you receive confirmation that your FAFSA has been processed successfully, contact our office to remove this requirement.

You can submit documentation one of the following ways:

  • Financial Aid Document Uploader
  • U.S. mail to the following mailing address:

    University of Texas at San Antonio
