Students can apply online at fafsa.gov. Please contact the Financial Aid Office if you have any questions or need any assistance.
Once received by USTDTS, the FAFSA results will be reviewed. Some students’ applications will be selected for verification – these students will be requested to submit additional documentation before their financial aid process can be completed. Once all necessary documentation is received, the student will be sent a financial aid award package. If the award package includes a loan(s), the student will need to take action via a paper award letter to accept, reject, or reduce the loan amount.
Financial aid funds (including student loans) will not be requested or applied to the student’s account until after the student starts class. All new students who are first-time borrowers must attend classes at a minimum of half-time status for 30 days before receiving any loan proceeds. Students will be notified when their financial aid funds (including loans) are disbursed and (if applicable) when a refund of excess financial aid is available.
