Freeze Deadlines for Financial Aid

UT uses a freeze date each semester to determine your enrollment status for awarding financial aid. The courses you are registered for on the freeze date will determine your financial aid eligibility as long as the completed results from your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) are on file by that date.

If your completed FAFSA results are received after the freeze date, your financial aid will be based on your enrollment on the date the completed FAFSA results are received. “Completed FAFSA results” means that an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) has been calculated by the US Department of Education. This EFC may change once all documentation is submitted and processed.

Financial aid will only pay for courses that are on your schedule on or before the freeze date each semester.

If you plan to register for second session courses, they must be on your schedule at the beginning of the semester to be included for financial aid eligibility.

Federal and state aid will not be available for courses added after the freeze date.
