Disbursement of Financial Aid & Scholarship Funds

  • For your awards to disburse, your awards must be “accepted” on myUNTD. You can also “decline” awards you do not want to receive.
  • Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) is monitored at the end of each term.  You must be meeting the minimum standards for SAP by the end of any given enrollment period at UNT in order to maintain financial aid eligibility.
  • Disbursement of most financial aid funds to undergraduate students will occur once you establish half-time (6 undergraduate hours) attendance.
  • Disbursement of most financial aid funds to graduate students will occur once you establish half-time (5 graduate hours) attendance.
  • State and institutional grant funds will be disbursed in one disbursement on the 1st class day of the session in which you establish half-time attendance.
  • Federal grant payments may be delayed due to required review by SFAS staff. These payments are based on your annual limit and on your summer enrollment status. Please note: some grants have additional requirements and are not guaranteed.
  • Loan funds will be disbursed in one disbursement on the 1st class day of the session in which you establish half-time attendance. You must have completed Entrance Counseling requirements and have a signed Master Promissory Note (MPN) on file with your lender before funds will disburse.
  • If you have been awarded your maximum Direct Stafford Loan eligibility during the Fall/Spring 2017-2018 terms, you will not be eligible for loan funds during the Summer 2018 term.
  • Scholarship funds will disburse to your student account once you establish attendance in the credit hours required to receive your award(s). Please review your scholarship award notification and/or agreement to confirm enrollment requirements, and contact the funding department or external agency for additional information.

Anticipated Aid

  • If the total amount of your Anticipated Aid does not cover your full tuition and fee balance, you must make arrangements for the difference by contacting Student Accounting and University Cashiering Services in order to prevent your classes from being dropped (regardless of whether your financial aid and scholarship proceeds are available by the payment deadline).
  • Anticipated Aid is: (1) Scholarships you have been awarded, and/or (2) financial aid you have “Accepted” on myUNTD.
  • Anticipated Aid does NOT include Work Study or Parent (PLUS) Loans or Grad PLUS Loans that have been denied due to adverse credit history by the borrower’s lender.
  • The Parent (PLUS) Loan and the Grad PLUS Loan will count toward Anticipated Aid if the Parent (PLUS) Loan borrower or Grad PLUS Loan borrower does not have an adverse credit history and Student Financial Aid and Scholarships has received a credit approval through the Federal Direct Loan Program.

Attendance and Withdrawal Information

Reminder for Summer 2018


All students who are considering dropping from one class or withdrawing from all classes during the Summer semester need to review this important information regarding changes to withdrawal processing.

  • You must adhere to class attendance requirements as defined by the university if you enroll in Internet classes.
  • If you register for summer classes and decide not to attend, you are REQUIRED to notify BOTH Student Financial Aid and Scholarships (SFAS) AND the Registrar immediately to begin the withdrawal process.
  • Dropping courses below half-time prior to disbursement of financial aid may result in your becoming ineligible for all non-disbursed aid. Additionally, if class attendance is not established, you will become ineligible for disbursed aid and therefore owe a debt to the university.
  • If you withdraw from UNTD prior to the 60% point of the summer session(s) you are scheduled to attend, you may owe a repayment of financial aid funds to the program(s) from which they were awarded (thus owing a debt to the university). 
  • Failure to officially withdraw may result in the receipt of failing grades and you may owe a repayment of financial aid funds to the program(s) from which they were awarded (thus owing a debt to the university) .
  • Students who receive failing grades (F’s, WF’s and/or NP’s) in ALL classes while also receiving federal financial aid may owe a repayment of financial aid funds to the program(s) from which they were awarded (thus owing a debt to the university).
  • Withdrawing from classes or failing to complete and pass registered hours will affect your future eligibility for financial aid. You must meet SAP requirements to maintain eligibility for financial aid as defined by SFAS.
  • If you have outstanding charges from a previous award year, you must pay your balance before any current term funds will be posted to your tuition and fee account.
  • For Title IV purposes, a student who has enrolled in a session(s) offered in the summer term and does not complete the session(s) in which he was enrolled is considered to have withdrawn and a Return to Title IV calculation (R2T4) will be completed.
  • SFAS will not consider you to have withdrawn for the summer term if:
    • You give the institution written confirmation that you will attend a session that begins later in the summer term.
    • The written confirmation must be provided at the time that would otherwise have been a withdrawal.
    • If you do not attend the later session(s), the date of withdrawal from the previous session will be used as the official withdrawal date to determine the amount of Title IV aid to be returned to based on the R2T4 calculation.
