or apply for Scholarships. Some of these offers imply that you must use their services,
and some of them are outright scams. All of them will cost you money, and they may
put you at risk for identity theft. If you have any questions about an offer, please
feel free to check with our office.
We urge students and families to be cautious of any scholarship search opportunities
Require you to pay fees
Offer a money-back guarantee
Guarantee that you will win some type of award
It has been brought to our attention that some students at UD or associated with UD
faculty and staff may have received a mailing from College Financial Advisory or Student
Financial Resource Center out of San Diego.
The letter gives an upcoming filing deadline, file status, and includes a student
aid profile form that asks for your birth date, phone number, and other personal information
including your signature. It also asks for a processing fee payable by check or money
UD did not initiate this mailing or provide names to the company. Financial aid and
scholarship advising are available to all UD students free of charge. Please contact
your financial aid counselorfor help or advice.
The University of Dallas has been recognized in the 2017-18 Colleges of Distinction Guidebook for the eighth consecutive year among nearly 400 of America's best liberal arts institutions. The annual college guidebook featured the university for having one of the nation's most vibrant college communities and named UD as one of three Catholic Colleges of Distinction in Texas.
Charles T. Uhl, who worked in UD's IT Department, sent four of his five children to UD and to Rome. When their father passed away, the Uhl children, along with their mother, Nancy, set up a scholarship fund in his name to enable more students to be able to afford Rome each semester.
They came here so that someday, they can go back with even more to offer. Sana Kandalan, MA '19, and Anmar Oghanna, MBA '19, a wife and husband, both received scholarships to pursue graduate education at UD; they hope to use their degrees and experiences here to better serve their community back home in Erbil.
