Changes to Your Family’s Financial Situation

The UT Dallas Office of Financial Aid recognizes the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the burden it has placed on many college students and their families. If you or your parents have experienced a significant financial change, you may be eligible for a reconsideration of the financial aid offered to you.
