Graduates: Applying for Financial Aid
To be eligible for federal financial aid, you must be either a US citizen or permanent
resident. You cannot be in default on any student loans or have borrowed the aggregate
(lifetime) maximum in the federal student loan program ($138,500 between subsidized
and unsubsidized loans, including both undergraduate- and graduate-level loans).
Please wait until you have been admitted to the University of Dallas to submit your
financial aid documentation (e.g. FAFSA). You cannot be awarded until you are admitted
to a degree-seeking program. The University of Dallas does not require the CSS Profile.
Per federal regulations, the Federal Direct Subsidized loan can no longer be issued
to graduate students after July 1st, 2012.
Complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) at the new website:
You must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) annually when
you wish to apply for aid. Federal student aid for a graduate student consists primarily
of the Federal Unsubsidized Loan.
The 2021/22 FAFSA opened on October 1, 2020.
For the 2021/22 FAFSA income information will be based on 2019 (called prior prior year or PPY).
The school code for UD is 003651.
We will review all submitted information.
New and returning graduate students who are offered Federal Student Aid (namely the
Direct Unsubsidized Loan) will receive a financial aid notification through email
to their UD email address. Students who do not appear to be eligible based on the
submission of the FAFSA, or information therein, will be contacted by a Financial Aid Counselor with additional information or requirements.
All students will view, accept, and/or decline financial aid on BannerWeb.

Accepting the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan
If you accept your Federal Direct Loan 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 studentaid.gov. Failure to do so will keep your loan from disbursing to your account, and ultimately
in the cancellation of your loan.
