Financial Aid Freeze Deadlines

UT’s freeze date is a date each semester where your enrollment status (based on credit hours you are enrolled in) is evaluated. Your enrollment status on each freeze date will determine your financial aid eligibility for that semester.

UT needs your completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) results on file by freeze date.

Freeze Deadline FAQs

What happens if my FAFSA results are received after the freeze 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 a Student Aid Index (SAI) has been calculated by the US Department of Education. This SAI may change once all documentation is submitted and processed.

What courses are included in the financial aid freeze date?

Financial aid will only cover 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.

Can I receive aid for courses I add after the freeze date?

No, federal and state aid will not be available for courses added after the freeze date.
