Receiving Your Aid
Financial Aid begins disbursing federal, state and institutional aid 10 days prior to the first day of class for the fall and spring terms.
Summer disbursement dates can be found on the Disbursement of Summer Aid webpage. Students must be enrolled for the required number of hours as budgeted before aid will be disbursed. You must accept your financial aid offer through myUTSA Account and have completed any actions required to complete your financial aid file before funds will be disbursed to your student account. This includes ensuring you have no financial aid holds or outstanding requirements. If you estimated your income on your FAFSA, you will be required to update your tax information.
It is vital that you frequently check your UTSA email address and your myUTSA Account account. Emails are sent to inform you of updates and notifications of outstanding requirements. You may also check your financial aid status on your myUTSA Account. Please note, you will be prompted to two-factor authentication through DUO when trying to access financial aid information on your myUTSA Account.
If you are a first-time freshman, please note that final high school transcripts must be received and processed by Admissions in order for financial aid to disburse.
