Notification of Awards
All students (first-time and prior recipients of financial aid) at UTSA are notified of financial aid awards through an email notification sent to the preferred email account as indicated on ASAP. All students may accept or decline financial aid awards online on ASAP. View our tutorial for guidance on how to navigate ASAP for financial aid purposes and see below for details on when awards should be expected by semester:
Students entering the Fall semester
First time students (freshman, graduate and transfer) are typically awarded for the fall semester in March each year. Continuing UTSA students and returning or re-admitted UTSA students are typically awarded for the fall semester in June of each year. This is to ensure that continuing and readmitted students are meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress and are eligible to continue receiving financial aid.
Students entering the Spring semester
Students meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress are notified of awards if starting in the spring semester late November and early December of each year.
Summer Financial Aid
Students meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress must have both a FAFSA on file as well as submit a Summer Application (available to fill out through ASAP) in order to be awarded for the summer semester. Typically, awarding takes place late April and early May.
