All About Money


Pursuing a graduate degree is an important decision, and we want you to know that cost does not have to be a barrier to your success. Your plans to pay for graduate school may include fellowships, assistantships, scholarships, grant funds, student loans or student employment. The resources below are here to help you explore your options.

    Financial Aid and Loans

      Financial Aid makes it possible for thousands of students to attend UNT. Learn the basics of financial aid, including eligibility, financial need determination, and how to apply using the FAFSA.

      We encourage all UNT students to complete the annual Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA www.fafsa.gov), and ensure they are prepared to utilize potential Federal program eligibility. To be considered for financial aid each year, the FAFSA application must be submitted. It is available annually January 1. Early application annually ensures the best opportunity to compete for available funding. Important note: The financial aid priority deadline is currently March 15.

      Effective Fall 2012, graduate and professional students are no longer eligible to receive subsidized loans. For more information, you can review the Department of Education's electronic Announcement.

    Emergency Loans

      There are several emerency loans offered across campus that are intended to help students remain enrolled. These loans typically require repayment within the same semester.
