Federal Financial Aid is available to US citizens and Permanent Residents. If you have questions about your status and eligibility, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
Please wait until you have been admitted to the University of Dallas to submit your financial aid documentation. You cannot be awarded until you are admitted to a degree-seeking program. University of Dallas does not require the CSS Profile.
You must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) each year that you wish to apply for aid. The FAFSA requires information from the previous year's taxes. We realize you may not have your taxes completed by January 1st, however, we suggest students and parents use estimated tax information. Once you have completed your taxes, you may make necessary corrections online.
Part of this process will be applying for a Federal Student Aid Personal Identification Number (PIN). The PIN allows you to sign your FAFSA electronically. Both you and your parent each must apply for your own PIN if parent information is being provided on the FAFSA.
New students will receive an award letter detailing your total financial aid package. If you wish to accept and/or decline the financial aid offer, you must login to BannerWeb and do so online. Please check your preferred email daily for updates. Use the Financial Aid Comparison Worksheet (2014/15 version) to compare UD's costs to other schools you are considering.
Returning undergraduate students will receive an award notification of your financial aid package through email after April 1st. If you wish to accept and/or decline the financial aid offer, you must login to BannerWeb and do so online. Please check your preferred email daily for updates. Failure to check your email regularly, could result in a delay in processing your financial aid.

If you accept your Federal Direct Loan(s) and you are a new borrower at UD, you will be required to complete a Federal Direct Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN) and Direct Loan Entrance Counseling at StudentLoans.gov. Failure to do so will keep your loan from disbursing to your account, and ultimately in the cancellation of your loan.
but you are classified as a Texas resident and therefore are eligible to pay the Texas in-state tuition rate, use the 2013-14 TASFA application (PDF) (2014/15 version coming soon). To use this application, your classification as a Texas resident must not be due to a waiver, such as an in-state scholarship or an assistantship.
The federal government randomly selects students for verification. University of Dallas is required to verify the information submitted on the FAFSA before any federal and or state aid can be offered. Your Student Aid Report from the Department of Education will tell you if you are selected for the verification process.
When completing your FAFSA online, you have the option of automatically retrieving your income and tax data from the Internal Revenue Service and having it transferred to your FAFSA. The IRS Data Retrieval Tool is the preferred method to complete the FAFSA. The IRS Data Retrieval Tool is the fastest and easiest option and will satisfy the tax transcript requirement.
If you are required to request a tax transcript from the IRS (please see the Verification Worksheet), you may do one of the following:
Paper request- IRS Form 4506T-EZ (recommended). This option will allow you to have the tax return sent directly to
UD from the IRS. If the tax transcript is not sent directly to UD from the IRS, you
must sign the transcript before sending it to our office.
Call 1-800-908-9946. Or go online to www.irs.gov.
If you or your parents have filed an extension on your taxes and are selected for verification, we will be unable to process your financial aid until Data Retrieval has been utilized or a tax transcript received.
